My Latest Pieces

I have a growing stash of clay beads, buttons, and cabochons - because I just love them!  I've been ruminating on what to do with them, and the ideas keep coming.  I finally had a bit of "free time" (precious these days), and I spent that time out in the wet lab and then in the bead lab.  Here are my latest pieces, both of which were made specifically for the button and bead that I used in each piece.

First is my poppy pin, made with a poppy button from Lisa Peters Art.


And, of course, another vessel - my favorite form to make in felt.  This piece was made specifically for the raku bead that I used as a handle - made by MAKUstudio.  Here are both sides of the vessel.



And now it is absolutely imperative that I head out to the torch.  The Bead & Button Show is just around the corner...
And it's time for YOU to go have a happy and creative day!

This vase is really beatifull, particularly raku ceramic elements wonderfully fits to felt body! I like such "marriage" of felt with ceramic.

Thank you, "Platusia"! I love mixing different media as well. I'm very fond of mixing fiber and glass as well as fiber and ceramics. Well, fiber and just about anything... :D

Wonderful pieces!! That poppy is so gorgeous :) and I love the vessel.
Hmmm... wondering where the Pam came from too??!

Thank you for sharing what you've been working on, Shirley! Very inspirational :)

Thank you, Whytefeather! I get so excited about "making stuff" that I just HAVE to share. These days, my time to make stuff is severely limited, so it's that much more precious to me.

I'm so glad that all of you enjoy what I'm doing, I really appreciate it!
