This week it's all about faces! (and a winter flower)

Tina's goddess figurines

polymer clay shoes by Dan
Dan Crowley posted a new pair of shoes in his FB page, "Humpty and Elise". The shoes were made for a collector. He says it was fun trying to figure out how to fit Humpty into a shoe shape.
This Chicago based artist is creating his puppets for years and many of his sculptures are owned by collectors. Aluminium foil and felt are some of the materials he is using.

Maureen's friends and molds
Maureen Carlson with her ever smiling face and pleasant voice, share with us her face mold tricks. She is taking her silicon molds and manipulating them into endless faces and expressions.
I had the pleasure of taking a class with Maureen a couple of years ago at Cabin Fever Clay Festival and it was such a wonderful class.
This 41 minutes video is full of character, don't miss her 2nd video on using her hand molds.

Today was such a sunny day that I wore my shorts and went for a walk.
Winter flowers are still around but I'm not sure we'll see much rain in the next months. Summer coming too soon?
