BABY SHOE…

FINALLY felt well enough to work in my studio! A while back I found these small wood shoe forms at an antique shop. I used Souffle polymer clay to cover the form and added various parts to steampunk the shoe. I incorporated some gears, ball chain, pen springs, a bulb base and 4 metal leads from an EKG’s I had a while back. The finish is Art C wax.

ECHO DOT COVER…

I took an old can that I had saved, cut it down in height and covered it with Souffle Polymer Clay to create a cover for my Echo Dot that I have on my porch. It protects Alexa from the weather and I can listen to music and enjoy sitting on my porch chilling out. Had not played in my studio in months but this inspired me to create more. It had to have a Liberty theme…that is how I roll.

FOR MAUREEN…

My friend Beth Petricon, from Pennsylvania, send me a HUGE supply of awesome watch parts, mini bulbs, and other goodies from my art. It was like Christmas in February! Thank you so much my friend. I used some of the gears in this wall art I made for my girlfriend Maureen. I used Souffle polymer clay and numerous inclusions. I saw a piece Tim Holtz made and it inspired this project.

KONA FOR MOMO…

Maureen asked me to make a schnauzer to hang from her rear view mirror.  After getting Kona’s permission, I made this…Souffle polymer clay with numerous watch parts inclusions.

MEOW…

I made this little kitty ring dish for my long time friend Edith.  She is a real cat lover and I hope she likes it! Meow, meow, meow…

Heart of my heart…

2020 carheart

This heart was made for Maureen to hang in her new car.  Souffle polymer clay with inclusions of numerous gears, jump rings and other watch parts.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY EDITH…

This little kitty is a mini wall hanger.  The substrate is corrugated cardboard which was covered with Souffle polymer clay and then embellish was numerous different watch parts, some small ball chain and some eyelets. Wax was applied to colorize the kitty. This naughty kitty just happened to swallow a small bird. Hope you like your little kitty Edith!  If you look real close, the letter E is on the watch stem, how cool is that!

HELL ON WHEELS…

Here’s my one eyed monster on wheels terrorizing anyone in his path…he just keeps rolling around looking for trouble kinda like me.  Souffle polymer clay over a glass bottle adorned with gears, some ball chain, a glass eye and some horns.

POSITIVITY PUZZLE…

 

 

 

Ann Marie Donovan, owner of the Art Annex, decided to challenge some artists with a project called the: “Positivity Puzzle”.  She mailed a paper template of a puzzle piece to 31 artists and asked them to created an image in polymer clay of a positive thing. Here is the assembled puzzle. The puzzle will travel around to different locations and people can see through the eyes of each artist, things that they found positive. I am very honored to have my puzzle piece be a part of this project. 

I GIVE A HOOT~TO KIM…

This little owl is going to my friend Maureen’s co-worker Kim. Souffle polymer clay over a corrugated cardboard substrate with inclusions of numerous gears, a watch regulator for the beak, and a couple soda can pull tabs. Give a hoot and don’t pollute!
