Face Canes!

Polymer Clay Face Cane

Polymer Clay Face Cane

This week I decided to make a face cane – if only because I’ve never made one before and it seemed like a good idea. All in all, I’m kind of please with it for a first time. Still I was stuck with the next thougt – what to do with this cane. At this point it is about 3 inches across so I had a lot to play with.

Rescued! I am going to the Connecticut Clay Connection later…

Polymer clay Urban Setting Wall Hanging

Polymer clay Urban Setting Wall Hanging

One take away from my class with Christi freisen two weeks ago was if you want to explore, you have to just create and not worry so much about what am I going to do with it after. With that in mind I’ve been letting my self just work in whatever size of shape I needed. Most stuff has been the size of mini wall hanging. Working without worrying if it…

This weekend I had the thrill of doing another bunch of workshops with Christi Friesen in her stop in NYC in her world tour of workshops.

Trinket Boxes

Polymer clay Trinket Box

Polymer clay Trinket Box

I mentioned a few weeks back I took a workshop in making clay box. This one ISN’T from the workshop but one of the ones I made later. I found I really enjoyed the freedom you can have when the design is already set. I’ve made a few already with more to come. I liked playing with the blue and gold with a few brass accents for an aged but elegant look. The box is about 2…

Art Doll by Nicole

Sometimes the oddest things can catch your eye. Yes she’s a little creepy but her big soulful eyes just drew me in. Actually my husband says my creepy meter is way off, the ugly appeals to me in an off kind of way. I wish I could capture that kind of soul in my own dolls but at least I can admire this one.
