KatersAcres Polymer Clay Creations During the Christi Friesen Clay-a-thon Weekend in Ohio in May 2014Here’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” 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.

This was a special event for me because I got to share it with the most important woman in my life, my Mom.

Polymer Clay Creations by Diane Dillon

Artist: Diane Dillon

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.
