Clay Play

Portland classes have been posted and the line up is one of the most exciting ones ever planned. Registration will begin March 15 at noon – 12:00 pm PACIFIC time.

Our efforts will now turn to completing the packets for Virginia and Asilomar. My goal is to have them in the mail by March 15. With the Rock & Roll theme, the booklets have been fun to design.

I was able to spend some quality time working with art this weekend -- my new passion is making people and animals with polymer clay. I began this venture under the guidance of Judy Wise -- her clay family is fabulous and hysterical. I love their comical appearances.

This is Gurney. I had more fun bringing him to life. He was created in Bandon and Vonnie later told me that he resembles my ex father-in-law. She was right.

Gurney was always a nasty old man -- here he is trying to get a peek down the bathing suit of Bee's Beach Beauty while being watched intently by my odd beach bird.

Creating a new soul in the studio.

I think she will be a fairy with a hat that is a big leaf. The clay sort of makes a decsion on its own as I continue to work with it. Fun, soothing and rewarding!
