T 24…

Let me introduce T 24, a robot for my friend in North Carolina. T 24 was made with Souffle™ polymer clay and various old German watch parts. He is finished with mica powders. Hope you like him Tom!2016 Tom 24 Robot framed

What would you do for a Kit Kat bar?

This little heart light was made with a night light bulb, it is very small.  Inside are two little hearts made with Sculpey® Premo polymer clay.  Hey, “R”…what would you do for a Kit Kat bar?  That is the question missy….block

HEART IN HAND…

I made this sculpture with Makin’s Clay®.  Steampunk has always fascinated me and I got the idea for this a few weeks ago and had to give it a try with the Makin’s Clay®.  Being on the design team has challenged me to push myself away from easy projects to one that was a little difficult but I am happy with the results.2016 Heart in Hand

FOR JOHN…

My friend Brenda, in South Carolina, asked me to make a Bottle of Hope for her cousin John in Arizona who is fighting cancer. John likes golf so I made a golf ball on the top and a couple cactus for his home state.  I used Makin’s Clay® to cover a small insulin bottle that I had from Kinzee’s medicine. Prayers are going out to you John.

2016 Arizona Bottle of Hope

Monument Valley View. Monument Valley provides perhaps the most enduring and definitive images of the American West. The isolated red mesas and buttes surrounded by empty, sandy desert have been filmed and photographed countless times over the years for movies, adverts and holiday brochures. Because of this, the area may seem quite familiar, even on a first visit, but it is soon evident that the natural colors really are as bright and deep as those in all the pictures. The valley is not a valley in the conventional sense, but rather a wide flat, sometimes desolate landscape, interrupted by the crumbling formations rising hundreds of feet into the air, the last remnants of the sandstone layers that once covered the entire region. The area lies entirely within the Navajo Indian Reservation on the Utah/Arizona border; the state line passes through the most famous landmarks, which are concentrated around the border near the small settlement of Goulding – this was established in 1923 as a trading post, and provides basic visitor services

RUB-A-DUB-DUB REVISITED

OK, here’s the story…I go into Fidelity Bank the other day and the manager Joyce says I love the little village you made…you should put the three men in a tub on the back in a window.  I said that’s a cool idea!  So here is the revisited village with the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker….silly guys….2016 BBC House Front and Back side

MY HEART LITE…

I made this heart lite with Makin’s Clay®. After taking the end of the light bulb apart, I fashioned small heart shapes onto some wire then mounted the bulb on an old wooden block. This is for my wife’s desk. Happy Valentine Day Jan!2016 You light up my heart

RUB-A-DUB-DUB

My second February project for PolymerclayTV is sub-titled “It takes a village”.  I used PCTV’s Round & Square Fancy Scallop Cutters, the Mini Bling Design Mold and the Brick & Mortar Embossed Stamp.  I also used a Makin’s Clay® Texture sheet and one of their cutters. The polymer clay is on a substrate of pieces of 2″ x 4″. The project was finished with an antiquing of oil based paint for patina. Head over to the shop at Polymer Clay TV to check out all their cool products!Ukrainian land
