I had a great class today at Capricorn Community House, Yanchep. The students first of all learnt to make a ‘skinner blend ‘and then a kaleidoscope cane. This cane known as a complex cane is not really very hard to make as it is made of one large cane, reduced and cut into six segments.
A Skinner Blend is a technique allowing the even gradient blending of two or more colours of clay, developed by Judith Skinner. Here are some photos of my students making the skinner blends.
We made several canes and then grouped them together.
We then reduced the cane and then formed into a triangle shape, cut it into three segments. Then put the three segments together , cut this in half and put them together to form a hexagon.
We made a couple of items before the end of class.
