What a great workshop this afternoon – it was one of those times when everyone just opened up to their creativity and knew where they were going – it was a beautiful thing to watch! Here’s the video – fantastic group dynamics and I felt privileged to be a part of it.
. . .the Herb Garden Tour! I have weeded and mulched and potted – here’s a video of the result – Texas Eclectic is the theme, and that’s pretty much what it is! Now all I need are ticket-buying people to show up in the morning and add to our Scholarship Fund while adding to their herbal and gardening inspiration.
Report to follow.
Today is Open Studio – I am still working on small Spirit Faces – nothing like last-minute prep. And . . .next weekend is another big event – the scholarship fundraising Herb Garden Tour. Nice article in today’s Express-News featuring my backyard:
Every time I have a workshop here, I swear that it’s the best ever – and, honestly, this one had to be! We all use the same concepts and many of the same materials, but the individual styles just come shining through. Thanks to all who joined me. It was wonderful and I learned a lot, as always, working with such creative people.
Here’s a short video preview of some of the new work that I’ll be showing at the Sept. 15th Open Studio at Alison’s:
Something new, just for fun – I worked with some polymer clay after taking some small molds from little carved bone faces. I had to use polymer clay to hold the detail since earthenware is not fine enough. Here are a couple of results – I love the little round faces! I’ve already used them on some Spirit Boxes and some Shard Pins. The pendant is a cast copy of one that a good friend gave me for my birthday – you can see how the polymer clay retains the details of the original. The one in the photo is the clay copy – looks real!!
