|Our guild sign until June 23rd, 2013.|
|I couldn't wait to take the first letter off the old sign. They were all re-used on the new sign.|
This blank sign hung out in my studio for the fall and winter months and then the spring. The weather was very uncooperative and we needed a certain temperature maintained at night as we are working on the sign outside under my market canopy.

|Our current old sign with three ceramic objects still attached. One cause it's wired in with very thick wire and Kathy couldn't get it loose. and the others cause there are active wasp nests in behind them.|

At the end of our first day we had completed disassembling the old sign, smashing all the ceramics and had created the barebones layout of the new sign. We agreed to meet back Monday morning to continue the work.
