The Overseer

Every once in a while I work on the 40" altered doll.  I found some great tattered wings in the Halloween section at Goodwill.  She's high up on a shelf overlooking my work table....reminding me to get busy.

Toot-Toot My Horn

A very nice article in our local newspaper.  Sun City West Independent does a spectacular job in promoting our local art fair which is coming up Nov. 5th.  They feature various artists in the weeks leading up to the fair.  I am thrilled to be included.

Spiral Icicle Pattern

 I found the below spiral icicle pattern (click HERE) that is very similar to the discontinued Bead's Knees' crystal icicle ornament pattern I used in the photo above (click HERE).  I will be making some of these for the holidays.

 Sculpting translucent clay on glass is one of my passions.  This vase was purchased by a very good friend who fell in love with it.  It made me feel so good.

Black & White Bowls

 A 3" glass bowl covered with slices of the black and white polymer clay canes I received in the cane swap at the AZPCG Prescott, AZ retreat.
And a tiny 1-1/2" glass bowl covered in more black and white canes.

Black and White Canes

 I participated in a Black and White cane swap at the Arizona Polymer Clay Guild's Annual Retreat in Prescott, Az.  I have not done any caning in a long time so I kept it simple.  My hand is still not OK, but, boy, it felt good to work with clay again!
 I was happy with what I accomplished and had fun making a huge mess.
 I'm using some of the canes to cover glass bowls and some to cover eggs.
I ran the black and white scraps through the pasta machine until they were a beautiful gray color.  And then......made gray and white canes.
