Sometimes when I’m near the end of a chunk of wedged clay I like to play around with random tools. This is how my funny face pendants and beads came to be. The other day I was nearing the end of my work and decided to play around with the last bit of clay.
The first thing I did was roll a ball of brown stoneware and smoosh it flat.
Then I started poking at it with some wooden flower petal cuppers.
Well that was cute so I added another row using a stylus.
Then I decided to put the hole in the center with a small cutter…
I was happy with what I had created so I decided to wedge some more clay and make a few variations…
When I return from the bead cruise I’ll sponge, bisque fire and glaze them. The plan is to use multiple colors and then wipe the glaze off the top to let the natural clay peek through.
I’ll reveal the finished pieces as soon as they are ready!
