While the soup for the Bead Soup Blog Hop is still simmering I've been working on some new clay pieces.
I saw a cover shot on a recent magazine of a half flower clay piece and decided to make one for myself. Flowers are always fun and a half of a sun or flower is a great visual to play with. Certainly mine isn't much like the original artist - everyone has different skills but it was fun to try one.
Now the Raven pendant - that's all my style. Gosh they are powerful looking birds. I'm pretty happy with the sculpting on this one.
I've been working on several talisman type objects and thought I'd try some spirit beads too. In this photo (and an awful one I might add) I pulled out the red clay I've been reconstituting and made one that will rattle when it's shaken. It would be nice on a long necklace.
Fun stuff, don't you think? I'm not quite sure about the glaze for the Raven. This is still where my inexperience with that aspect is holding me back. Maybe I'll do some test tiles before I ruin a very nice piece. I suppose I could do a mold of it first - too many decisions when all I really want to do is play in the mud.
