The most exciting thing about the show, for me, was her use of cut up kiln shelves for these tiles. These may have been some type of industrial-grade shelf, about three inches thick, which gave the feeling of a painting on stretcher bars. The drawing is all in a fairly charged cobalt blue, and the line is more consistent than varied, but they are bold and not too flower-catalog illustrational-feeling. I love the no-warpage, no surprises, no nonsense solution of the kiln shelves.
