Now that studio cleaning is done, I am finally getting back to my clay work. Green is still the predominant color this week, and I had a lot of small pieces of varying shades of green, so I decided to just play with it. I’m really pleased with what is coming from that play. My work is beginning to gain a bit of depth, which has me wanting to explore more in surface techniques.
This week’s work has produced two ornaments, a label charm that will redesignate my toaster oven to a kiln. The label is mainly so guests will not cook food in the oven. A spoon crept out of a lovely leaf cane I created from all the small bits of leftover green. A jar has been started with last week’s black ornament. Finally, a box is popping out of inspiration from Meg Newberg’s monthly, Polymer Cane Workshop. Her monthly cane tutorials are a $5 per month subscription on Etsy, and usually include 3+ cane tutorials each. I highly recommend them if you are attracted to cane work.
I will be working on Meg’s canes and doing some finishing work this week. What will you be working on?
