Sometimes a dog does catch its tail Pres. And this is hilarious, because they don't know what to do next..... I'm not sure if this extension of your analogy still applies to your point, but it's too early for me to think.

Excellent video, thanks Marcia.

 

That man chiseling the geometric tiles, was insane.  

 

We've talked about "Craft" before on these boards.  Those workers are craftsmen.  Very skilled at what they do.

 

There are indeed a lot of great mosaics in that region, as well as other Muslim regions.  When you are not allowed to depict certain things in your art, you get really good at geometric designs.

JB Weld makes a good epoxy, that should hold up.  

 

Whatever you use, it has to handle freezing and thawing.  Along those lines, what kind of clay body are you using, and what Cone are you firing to?  The clay will need to be vitrified, in order to tolerate the conditions outdoors.
