Sculpting Retreat

I am finally working in the studio again, after graduation, kid visits, new job (which I LOVE), and one thing after another I am finally playing with clay.

This weekend I am heading to Portola to my sculpting groups annual retreat. It is something that I really enjoy, a weekend in lovely northern California with my friends, playing with clay, being silly and just enjoying life. At the retreat I'll be sharing the polymer eye cane with my group. I have used ideas and techniques from both Lisa Renner and Lisa Pavelka to create a realistic looking clay eye for my sculptures which I do not have to paint! I used this new (to me) eye technique in the sculpture below and I have since refined it quite a bit. Once I get it photographed I'll share here as well.

Work in Progress
This weekend I will also be starting to work on items for my booth in the McQueen High School annual Arts and Craft fair this October. My pumpkins will be there again. I'll be making snowballs this year and I have lots of ideas that I will be starting to create. I've been writing things down as I go so that I would remember what I wanted to do.

I anticipate that I'll have lots of fun things to share soon.

Thanks for being here!
