Warm And Fuzzy Feeling

 

When chilly weather comes around, I loose my desire to work with cold, hard metal and stones. Instead a want to cozy up in a nice comfy chair and stitch on something warm and fuzzy. Continuing with the leaf theme, I have turned out several felt brooches made from upcycled, felted sweaters, salvaged zippers, needle felting, embroidery, and buttons.

These will be available at Wall Candy Custom Framing and Gallery in Columbia, Tennessee and hopefully soon at my other retail locations.

Twigs and Leaves

 

 

It was a back to nature day for me in the studio today. I had some leaves that I had made from ceramic clay using the leaves from my lamb’s ear plant to make an impression in the clay. A piece of driftwood from the Tennessee River served as the twig from which the leaves could dangle.

These leaves were impressions of my apple mint, strung with wooden and glass beads with a vintage button for a closure.

These can be found at our First Thursday Artisans Party tomorrow night (June 7) from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at Wall Candy Custom Framing and Gallery in beautiful downtown Columbia, Tennessee. Come enjoy the food, wine, live music, and local art. Help us to revive downtown Columbia with the arts!

 

Leaves of Clay

These leaves are made of clay that was fired for me by The Royal Brush in Columbia, Tennessee. Is anyone interested in taking a class in which we will make clay pendants and create necklaces from them? There are unlimited options of designs that can be made. They have asked me to teach a class if there is enough interest. Please either contact me through my link here on the site or through their Facebook page let them know that you are interested. It would require one class to make the pendants and then after they are fired, another one to construct the necklaces. Price is to be determined when we find out if there is an interest. It would probably be on a Thursday evening or a Sunday afternoon.
