Who is minding your door? - Rye Presbyterian Church, Rye, NY

I especially liked the smiling one.
The address for the church is on the 882 Boston Post Road. I loved driving bits of the old postal route from NYC to Boston.

What a great piece of architecture, and beautifully capture by your camera and your very talented eye. I too like the smiling gargoyle best, he seems to temper the other three who appear to be not in the best of moods.

Great looking door and those mini gargoyles are wonderful. They would scare me into being good, that's for sure.

I take it this is not a good time to come visit you in PV.

Tash: It is nice to hear from you again. It gave me the opportunity to look at your last Rancho Palos Verdes pix. I also looked at your East Coast pix and love your Bethany Beach shots,The church door from Rye sure exudes with history.

There is so much interesting details in this door but the first thing I noticed is that it opens on the left: unusual, it isn't?

And I was just wondering what to make in ceramics class today.

I actually did make this. Well sort of....

I took a stone carved image from a (photographic source) of a carved lynx building ornament. I'm sure it came from the east coast. Reworked it in clay to form a bob cat. I made a mold off of it. I plan to use it as the one tile design I will repeat. It will be intersperse among the other differing tiles for the Lake Los Angeles entrance. (four delays on that project thus far) Next projected date....Jan 2010
