More from Mom

Hi All,

Mom's been playing some more. My brother brought these down for me to give away at the next Guild meeting. She was inspired to try Gollum from Lord of the Rings and used one of my brother's figurines as inspiration. I find him kinda creepy, but I guess that's the point, isn't it?

Can you imagine what Mom's talent will be like if she were to take some classes from the sculptors? I think she'd be unstoppable.

I haven't had a chance to clay very much lateley and when I do I seem to dance from one idea to another without actually completing anything. And the way the schedule is going it looks like I won't have time to do much in the next few weeks.

I did wear my new dichro earrings to work the other day and people must have wondered what I was doing in the bathroom jiggling my head from side to side. Turns out the dichro works really well with the fishing lure earrings since they automatically have movement in them. I can hardly wait to get the other sheets in to start playing.

That's it for now. Enjoy the photos of Mom's work.

Cheers everyone.

My giggle for the day

Hi All,

My very talented claying friend, Laurie, sent me this photo the other day (if you don't get it, look at the sign on the right). I laughed out loud and that's always a good thing.

Mom's been at it again...

Hi All,

These photos were in my e-mail this morning. They're photos of Bottles of Hope from my mother. She's done an amazing job and it looks like she's figured out lids (which I hate doing).

Mom's always had a bit of an addictive personality and now her addiction runs to clay. She's been dreaming about the bottles and tries to make the bottles in her dreams.

I think I'm going to try to persuade her to enter some contests or at least send some photos in to some of the publications if she keeps going the way she's been going.
Mom believes in high quality. The crystals on the various figurines are Swarovski crystals. No fake imitations for Mom.

She is having some oven problems and it's a question of buying an oven thermometer.

But the figures are beautiful and you can tell Mom's cake decorating skills really come into play here.

And it's nice having a family member understand why I enjoy the hobby so much.

Way to go, Mom! I'm so very impressed and proud. I'm sure the recipients will be thrilled!

Cheers all,
