Seven Swans a Swimming
I’m sure you know all about the family of 7 swans that spent most of the summer and fall at Front Beach in Rockport (see photo 1868, and our granddaughter Brooke confronting the “father swan” in 1888). Inspired by this, my wife, Judy Alpert’s fourth recent Bas relief wall mural is called Seven Swans a Swimming and is displayed in the picture window of her studio, Town and Sea, at 93 Main St. in Rockport (see photos attached). The puzzle pieces are stoneware (fired to 2300 deg F) with glazes mostly custom mixed by the artist. Thought your audience might be interested.
