And yay! I have been squishing around in the clay again! I work in cycles, so I often work in clay for a month, glaze for a few weeks, and make jewelry for a while and sell my work. So, now is a wet clay time. It's fun, it's freeing, it's why I love my job! Last night after my fever left, I set out to make some buttons at the request of my new favorite hat designer :-) Yay!! I am a hat addict. She so sweetly asked... Do you ever make 4 hole buttons? ----For you, anything!----
OK, I didn't actually make many 4 hole buttons, the clay had other plans. I did make some fabulous 2 hole buttons and shank buttons, (all the while imagining meeting my new favorite knitter) But really, mostly I made lots of fun disk beads. I have really been enjoying making the fibery disc bead necklaces... and my supply was getting dangerously low :-)
I made everything in white clay last night, and I think I will crawl into the dungeon (basement-crawl space) and see about some other clays I may have down there. I think I have some dark brown, manganese fleck, and porcelain... I wonder what will come upstairs with me!
