Here are a few of the pieces I made there. I did the little bear first. I made him without the leaves and made a mold from him. Don't know if I'll be successful, but I'd like to mold some ceramic pieces. After the bear I made a raccoon head and again made a mold.
Then it was on to several little horse totems, out of which grew the zebras and then the giraffe. These are small pieces - the zebras are 1 1/4" tall. The zebras were very popular, so I made two more for the raffle and the woman who really, really wanted them won them! Yea!
Most of the women were working with canes and I got the bug - but just a mild case. As soon as I got home I made the leaf canes and added the wreath to the bear cub. Then I made lots of leaf beads and am working on a necklace.
It was good to get back to polymer clay. And great to be with so many talented people who are such unabashed clay enthusiasts.
