I am making a donation-raising push, based on tiles. I will be donating the tiles either way, with or without donations to go along with them.
I am making 2200 tiles that I will bring to one of the towns that will be rebuilding in the near future. Along with the tiles I would like to also bring a donation of money.
The tiles are small, somewhere in the range of 15cm. by 5 cm by 12 mm. thick. They will be made from a porcelain and white clay mix, wood fired and unglazed.
I am planning on writing the names of everyone who has died or is missing in iron and cobalt color.
I am going to ask for anyone wanting to support this project to “buy” one for 500 yen and I will donate the entire amount after Paypal fees. I am making the tiles and firing them with my own money. I have set up an account to accept donations at Paypal. The account is david – at mark – davidmorrisonpike.com
If you like, please leave a comment.
Here are pictures of the wet tiles, 15 cm. by 5 cm. by 12 mm thick.
March 18. I have found a calligraphy club that has expressed interest in helping me write the names of the people who died and are missing. It will be a tremendous help.
