I’m back, with creatures….
I have been playing with my clay, it’s been very therapeutic at this difficult time. I’ve also been clearing up my work space and sorting out all my clay scraps and using them to make creatures! My son is doing well, his arm seems to be healing nicely. Thank you for all your kind messages of support, it’s nice to know you are there!
I’m having a table at my kids school Christmas Fayre (Begbrook School in Bristol, UK on the 3rd December if you are local!) and one of the criteria is that you should have things available for the kids to buy. I normally sell little tortoises I make with my cane end scraps
|Here’s a small selection of my 60 odd tortoises|
|and of course I had to see what they looked like with Stroppel Cane shells!|
Last year some one requested owls so I made owls too, and promptly sold them all. Finally I made more…
|My latest Parliament of owls.|
One of my friends has a collection of cute little cats so I thought I might try cats too and am very pleased with how they turned out. I am really enjoying making them from one piece of clay. I will try and do a tutorial for them when I next get a quite moment (probably 2012 at this rate!)
And finally I am taking part in the Totterdown Arts Trail (18-21st November, Bristol, UK) and they are inviting people to create Guerrilla Ducks, decorated ducks, so here is my first attempt at a duck. Can’t quite get the beak right, I did try adding a yellow beak but that just didn’t work for me. I will try again another day.
If you want to find out where I will be displaying my work, or when I am running workshops don’t forget to check my Diary page (you can use the link bar at the top of the page too). They are all in Bristol, UK at the moment but sure I will venture further afield one day;)
Will try and post some photos of my latest jewellery at the weekend, got to do some sanding first though!
