Here are the prizes for Breakables at Breyerfest!! These will be for the Pour Horse classes, and I'm very pleased to be able to supply awards for this fantastic show.
The tile sculpt was done by Lynn Fraley in 2000, as a gift when she and Barry were coming down to visit. I have always sort of hoarded these...! Less than a dozen have ever been made. They are fairly large, about 6 1/2 incbes square. The detail is just beautiful! I love the Celtic Knot motif, the leaping horse, and the painstakingly and perfectly executed lettering. So, having kept them mostly to myself (I have five hanging in the barn, and have only parted with a couple as awards) I consider them to be very, very special and important.
The glazes are Mayco Elements, and they are quite a bit richer and more subtle in person. I am sure that the people who win them will enjoy them. So, they are off to Maggie today, along with my best wishes for the show, the participants, and Maggie!
