Many people, including yours truly, are daunted by the thought of pulling a handle for a mug. So rather than face the task with fear, I decided to pay special attention to my mug handles to see whether I could come up with handles that are fun to make. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:
It’s not like I don’t already have enough beads, but having access to a pottery studio, glazes and a bead tree has made new beads magically appear in my workshop. The items you see below are pendants and a couple of bead comes.
Here are some beads in their greenware state and decorated state after bisque firing and prior to glaze firing.
And if bead making was not enough, I been making little trinket bowls to hold rings and other small treasures.
I am having fun with different glazes and textures, and finishes.
And I have also been having fun making components for the Into the Forest collaborative polymer clay project.
