A New Year, A New Project!








Cannot believe another year's over! It was a successful show season and I've been taking it easy since the end of Butterdome in the beginning of December and enjoying the company of my family and friends.

But alas, it's time to get back to work and creating. I'm taking a bit of time off right now to create pieces for my own pleasure and to feed my artistic soul. I've had a few lamps in my studio that I've been meaning to work on but nothing had materialized till now. I had made a translucent floral petal cane last Spring, but the idea didn't gel at that time. Then all of the sudden, right as I was deciding on making an 'art' piece...the idea just flowed for me and I want to share the end result!

It's a waterlily themed lamp with dragonflies...I hope you enjoy it!

These are really wonderful- so glad I found your blog. Do you mind sharing how you added color to the translucent clay? I never copy people's work but I am very interested in new techniques.

Heather, I do have colour transparent clay by fimo...have had it for a long time. Some of the colours are made by mixing little bits of regular colour into regular transparent. Haven't tried inks in it yet, but I wonder if that would work also.
