Comment: This is a
departure from my usual style. The grout is a sandy tan which
doesn't compete with the colors of the tile. The piece is very
cheerful. I used lots of turquoise, pink, yellow, periwinkle
blue. The top features a small ceramic bird perched on the edge.

quietude, aware at once of earth's surrounding mood, and of an
insect crawling on a stone."
