I've starting playing with clay again. I just started working with ceramic clay after learning from Elizabeth Gonzalez' wonderful e-class on ceramic clay. This is a wonderful way to get started from the comfort of your home. Work in ceramic and polymer can blend some basic techniques, but the feel is much different. I really like the forgiveness and ease of working with ceramic. Here are some of the initial shaping experiments I have done. Now I have to get the nerve to fire the ceramics. I look forward to that! I can't wait to add color!
I haven't done a giveaway in ages! Well, I haven't been blogging much this year or last year and I'm trying to get my rhythm going again. It's been a bit hit-and-miss because of the migraines this year. Ah, well! I did some brooches a few years ago in polymer clay. I received some nice compliments on these funky brooches. So, I'm trying them out again. I love the geometric designs and the wild color combinations, so I'm calling this collection "Color-ometry." I still have some work on the details to improve, but I'm really happy with the initial results.
This baby isn't ready for "the big time" yet (or to be given away). I need to figure out how to get the "pebble cascade" more stable. While the teeny pebbles popped off, the bigger ones have been staying put. I'm going to experiment with resin. I know I only need glue, but I think encasing the cascade in resin might add an interesting dimension.
Here is the Give-Away: The Color-ometry Brooch
Interested in the above funky brooch? It is approximately 2" tall by 1.5" wide. I did a "test wearing" of it the other day to make sure it wasn't top-heavy and set right. It wore well! Please comment below to let me know if you're interested in the giveaway. Make sure I can contact you in some way!
Thanks for stopping by!
