Tangerine Tango

For those worried about being out of favour here is the colour of the year for 2012- Tangerine Tango.  I have a palm ash tray my Uncle Jimmie made in the 30's at Medalta Potteries in Medicine Hat, Alberta. It is the most beautiful orange coloured by uranium. Hey the ciggies would kill ya before the uranium in the glaze. So Uncle Jimmie here it is 80 odd years later and you're back in favour. You're gonna be in doo-doo over the ciggies though. I still have the pink woman's mohair hat he wore daily. Being in favour was never what he much cared about. I think that is the way of true artists.


Today I feel like we've stumbled on being  cutting edge as we have tangerine orange in our e-ware colour palette.  Thanx Tracy and Grass for the encouragement in this search to find ourselves again.
