Teardrops and Fire

 Terracotta dish: 5x5"

One day, years ago, I felt like painting something.  I took an ad containing a photo of a woman looking up and turned her into my model. The rest was pure imagination.

It's the only painting of mine that I still have hanging on my wall and it's very indicative of my mood at the time. I've cropped it and applied it to various creations...including this dish:

The painting inspired the following poem, which I included on the finished dish:

Ghostly ocean eyes
drizzle blue sleet
over a chilled face
waiting for fire
--Lee Ann Monat

I love looking at this now because I feel as if I've finally found my fire.
