Polymer Clay Creations
Here’s a little gallery of my polymer creations, as well as the creations of other artists who joined us for a weekend in Ohio with Christi Friesen, hosted by B’Sue Boutiques.
Here’s a few of the things that I created on my weekend with Christi Friesen. The picture above shows all of the creations I made. The pictures to the left are my favorite pieces of the week. And the picture below is my favorite creation, “The Great Stone Lion.”
The Great Stone Lion
“The Great Stone Lion” by KatersAcres
“The Great Stone Lion” was found deep in the Amazon jungle. He was carved from the surface of a mountain hundreds of years ago by tribal people. As the years passed and people forgot about him, he became overgrown with leaves, vines, & even some banana flowers.
My Mom’s Creations
Artist: Diane Dillon
This was a special event for me because I got to share it with the most important woman in my life, my Mom. She never sat & played with clay before, so this was her very first time getting her hands busy working with polymer. I’ll be honest, my stuff didn’t look this good the first time I played with polymer. You can tell she really like the polymer stained glass project, perhaps it was because she worked with stained glass and made huge windows & designs for over 20 years … her love of it is shown in her little flower-scapes.
Many of the ladies I made created some gorgeous pieces. Some, who like my Mom had never worked with polymer, did amazing work for a newbie! If you attended this wonderful weekend, showcase your pieces below.
This showcase is only for those who participated in the weekend clay-a-thon.
