Paperweight….

2014 CC Canal Pape WeightWe went to this junk shop in Leominster and I found this piece of glass…it was dirty and had several layers of paper stuck to it.  So I bugged Jan again to find me a neat picture of the Sagamore Bridge: (our cottage at the Cape is at Sagamore Beach and we are almost right under the Bridge).  I cleaned up the glass and cut the print to size and glued it in the bottom recessed area.  This piece is also going to the Cape…I can toss my keys in it or just enjoy the print of the Bridge!  One man’s junk is another’s treasure!!!

PORTHOLE…

2014 seahorse portalLast time Jan and I were at the Cape we bought this little brass porthole that had a mirror in the center.  I had Jan print out an underwater scene and then I made a polymer seahorse and glued it to the center of the scene…I then put blobs of Mod Podge on the print … I love the ripple effect it added to the paper making it look like water.  The seahorse has numerous inclusions including a small round screen that I got from one of my COPD inhalers. There are ball chain segments, watch hands, watch gears and other metal parts making up the adornments on the seahorse.  This little project will be on the door to the “Head” at our cottage.

FOR TOIREASA…

2014 Butterfly CenterThis polymer pendant was made for a woman I came across during my duties as a Constable.   She lost her son last year at age 29.  The butterfly signifies resurrection and the wings are for flight.  Rest in peace Keith. The piece was finished with mica powders and has a couple of “screws” in the clay.

HAMSA…

2014 Hand it overThis is a hamsa…an amulet thought to bring good luck and happiness.  It was made from polymer clay and has numerous inclusions and finished with mica powders.  Would you like to own it?  Leave a comment on my Blog…then next week Kinzee will pick a winner
