The Austin Shrine Project

I have this nutty idea that people in Austin should build random shrines in nature. Help me if you wish to. These are the ceramics I want to use. They would be placed in trails in nature with flowers. Or whatever we feel earth should be honored with. Contact me if you are interested. http://myteacup.com/shrine/index.html. The page has some photos of my first attempts to hand build plates, cups and bowls.  Obviously, I’m terrible at it. But I don’t know what to do with the stuff — it’s not good enough to sell.  I need a way to give the pieces a home and a purpose. Otherwise….they will just sit there….they deserve more….so I keep thinking “Nature Shrines!”

I just googled art in Austin parks and came up with with link which looks totally cool http://www.facebook.com/AustinAIPP.  So does this really need Druid Fairy Garden… http://druidgarden.files.wordpress.com/2012/09/fairy_shrine_beltane.jpg

An example of the hand built items. Now you see what I mean when I say it looks like a 5th grader made them…
