PORTHOLE…

 

 

 

Our Cape Cod cottage is being sold.  I took the steampunk seahorse porthole home from the Cape 2014 seahorse portaland it now adorns my bathroom door here in Shirley.  I made this in 2014, now it is back home.

FOR HOWARD…

 

 

 

 

2017 EKG HeartThis heart pendant was made for a friends hubby who recently had open heart surgery.  I used Sculpey® III and various gears and copper wire.  The arteries were formed using my Makin’s Professional® Ultimate Clay Extruder®. I also added a mini circuit board on the back to control the beat. When my wife took a picture of it for my Blog, she said: The gear in the front looks like a face…I said OMG, Marie, his wife, sees faces in everything!  Here’s looking at you.

NUMBER 13…

 

 

 

 

The Background Graphics Desktop Design BlueNumber 13 was created from Makin’s Clay®, the No Bake Clay®. He is my September project and he now monitors the activities in my studio.  Hop on over to: Makinsclayblog.blogspot.com for complete instructions and make yourself a little robot! 

VULCAN CASTLE…

 

 

2017 Vulcan RockMy wife was in Alabama recently for a family reunion. She always brings me a small rock from her travels: (at my request). She was at the Vulcan in Birmingham, the largest cast iron statue in the world where she found a small piece of hematite iron ore.  I made a polymer castle, about 1 1/2″ tall on top of this little rock and decided to call it the Vulcan Castle. I used Sculpey Souffle™  polymer clay and mica powders in the making of the castle.

FAUX FUSED GLASS NAUTILUS…

 

 

2017 Nautilus ShellThis pendant was made from Makin’s Clay®.  I added nail art foils and finished with DecoArt® Triple Thick Gloss Glaze.

OH BUOY…

 

 

Maritime Boat Bump Buoy BoatingI made this buoy using Makin’s Clay®, The No Bake Clay®.  The substrate is a cardboard tube and aluminum foil. It was antiqued with burnt umber oil paint. I also used a Makins® Clay Cutter to form the number “6”.  The buoy is about 5″ tall. Taking this to our Cape Cod cottage.
