More Bronze

I used one of the polymer surface textures that I showed in a previous posting for the above pairs of earring circles. It's one of my favourites and came from a small wire woven piece that I made years ago.

The above piece is made using Hadar's techniques. I cut out a square of bronze clay and drapped it over a base of clay, just like fabric. I then pressed the folds down onto the base to make them secure and finished the edges.

This pair are made using several textures and laying them on a base to give the impression of a ocean scene. The colours are interesting, so different in each disc. It's very exciting opening the kiln after a firing and delveing through the charcoal to discover the amazing colours.

These are just delightful Pam. I can see you are thoroughly engrossed in your experiments with the new Bronze clay and look forward to seeing and hearing about your progress with this new material.
