"Thing a Day" Day 4

Most everything I make is an adventure. I rarely have a plan in mind when I go to the clay room.... Sometimes I am inspired by the scraps lying around on my work table, sometime I get I get inspiration by sorting through my canes.... sometimes it's the colors of clay in the drawer.... or maybe I see a pattern on a fabric... what ever strikes my fancy.... I sit down and let my muse take over.  I enjoy playing with clay.  My biggest problem is knowing when to stop!

Bear with me on the photos.... Heather  isn't here on the weekends so I had to take them myself.

Here is my Day 4

This piece was uncured when I  took the photo.... it is in the oven now....  The flowers are from a Jackie cane. I do love my Jackie canes!!  Once it is cure I will sand the sides and seal the silver leaf. I've decided to make it a brooch so I will add a pin back.

Click on the photos for a closer look.

I also make some chunky texture beads.  After curing I highlighted the raised areas with silver "Rub and Buff".  The top one on the right hasn't been "rubbed and buffed" yet.  I have more of these in different colors.

So there you have it... see you tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Those are lovely, I particuarly like the brooch :) Interestingly combined elements and the design is very pleasantly balanced.

  2. Thank you Purky.... I appreciate the kind words.

  3. I'm so happy that you love the canes! Easy button. :) You are doing the neatest things with them.

    1. Yes indeedy I do love my Jackie canes (and scraps).
