Yep, that sums up this week.
Above are two vessels I made whose lids did not fit. So I am trying again. The tops have hollow discs so that I might try making some polymer clay flower bouquets like I once used to do on wooden boxes. Here are some examples of the flowers I used to create:
It will be interesting to mix polymer clay with pottery clay. I haven’t really seen anyone doing that.
Ahh, two more vessels whose lids did not fit! I made two more lids and hopefully they work. Next week I will have two make two more vessels to fit the extra lids I now have…It’s an ongoing dilemma!
It wouldn’t be a week without making a few more mugs… I bought these rubber stoppers so that I could create my own travel mug. The lids work! So I am making a few more…I really need to move on to dishes and bowls though. My husband is cutting me off from any more mug cabinet space!
Did I mention I went into a 2nd grade class to teach about coil & pinch pots? The kids are studying North Eastern Native American Tribes. They are so excited to get these pots back. I rubbed them with iron oxide so that they would look “historic” and all of their details would stand out. I can’t wait to see their faces :)
OK. Off to finish that darn bird painting!
Be Creative People! Be Creative!
