One Ringy-Dingy...

I've been working solidly this past week with polymer clay after I sold several pieces while we were on vacation. Katie's Traveling Trunk Show strikes again - I just love how my work seems to sell itself.



To get back into the groove, I started pawing through the various canes I've made over the past two years. Some of them are pretty old so I thought I'd try making some little ring bowls to use them up. I've wanted to make these sweet little bowls for a long, long time so, armed with this tutorial, I got to work.



I made four the first day, and I have to ask, "Why is it, that each new thing I try is more fun than the LAST new thing I tried?"



I enjoyed the process of putting those four together, and today I added another seven to my stock.



Each one is unique.



In the process I've used up a few canes that have been hanging around since my early days of clay experimenting.



I'll be offering these little beauties for sale soon once I've built up some inventory. In the meantime, you can find me up to my eyeballs in patterns and color...

Lemonade and not a lemon in sight! These are brilliant and beautiful as well. You are so wise to find innovative ways to use your beautiful canes.

Great idea! Love them. I thought of you when I read this issue of American Craft, they have an article of NEW polymer clay works.
