More Marks

This one is made of molding paste, cheesecloth and lots of paint layers. The one I made yesterday? It was bothering me this morning so I proceeded to add more paint and achieved a mess! I'm going to work on it some more and see if it can be salvaged....chances are not good but we'll see....

I often find the unexpected thoughts of quiet memories to be the sweetest. I hold them dear to my heart and know that these help define our lives as much as the larger events that shape us.

This assemblage is comprised of fired, glazed and painted clay pods, an antique wooden pencil box and vintage nails. It measures 6" high x 9" wide x 3" in depth.

Start of The Pod Farm

This is one of the pods that came out of the gas kiln this week. I am certainly seeing this in an assemblage in front of that vintage, ethnic looking wrench Melanie brought me the other week. I have a blessed week off between Christmas and New Year's. A week that I usually fill with time spent seeing friends and family and....ART (hooray). I have visions of pods dancing in my head, also have an itch to pick up the pastels. Oh, how sweet anticipation can be.
