I just came back from Clayathon. It was 5 glorious days of claying, learning and community!
The guest artist was Lindly Haunani. She is an expert in color theory and polymer clay.
I made leaves for an upcoming installation piece for Laura Tabakman and Emily Squires Levine. You can follow Emily or Laura for further developments. I will make sure you get the details as they unfold!
I was experimenting with surface design. This is the start of a teapot. Coptic marker was used over white clay and then carved. Translucent clay with red embossing powders was used. It needs to be sanded and buffed before I continue. I will post my progress in the next blog. (I also post on Instagram).
My muses were keeping me active. Along with the surface designs, there were small 2 inch fish and birds. I like the way they turned out. There will be more of these little guys appearing in the future.
Time to unpack and face reality..........
Looking out my back door tonight.
