A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of taking a 2-day polymer clay workshop from Donna Kato. For those of you that may not know Donna, she is one of the pioneers in the PC world. Not only has she developed her own line of clay, but she is an incredible artist and designer. Her work is always professional and finished perfectly to the smallest detail. During the course of the workshop, we learned how to make fluid caned bracelets as well as a variety of organic pods.
Here are some of my creations from the two days.
I stretched myself and used pretty bold colors that I might not normally work with…
Here’s a side view with some of the canework…
I made a matching pendant using a mirror image technique:
And experimented with a “squiggly bead”:
And finally, here’s a beautiful pod brooch I purchased of Donna’s:
I’m looking forward to trying some of the techniques I learned on new creations soon. Will post them when I do!
