Tundra Swan

Tundra Swan, Six-Inch Sq.

Tundra Swan, $75
Some years, while migrating, a pair of tundra swans stop over at the lake where I walk our dog near the university and native hospital. They are huge and the other smaller ducks like to hang around them since the swans dig up quite a bit of stuff from the lake bottoms. It almost looks like paparazzi around beautiful celebrities. The same lake is frozen right now and last week there were nine moose scattered around the trails. Had to make detours. Even our huge american bulldog is wary of the moose since he took a couple of stomps while protecting my girlfriend from an irrate moose at another park.

The tundra swan is the third new tile design that I recently made for the upcoming Fur Rondy festival that starts next week. They will also be in Octopus Ink downtown for a March Show.

    Hi Ed-
    I love the Swan/Eagle?Raven series of 6″ tiles you did for Fur Rondy and ended up buying those and more. The designs and glazes are fantastic. I do regret not buying the 6″ loon tile and would love to add it to my collection if you make it again. Please keep me me in mind if/when you have the loon tile again. Thanks!

    Hi Ed-
    This is great news! Please let me know if you do find time to make another loon tile. Good luck with the mural.
