Enchanted Clay

I love breaking dishes, playing in mud and now I'm back to making jewelry and learning to solder! I am a self taught mosaic artist and have been cracking and creating for over 8 years. The more I do, the more I want to do, but my "Real" job keeps getting in the way of my play time! LOL!

Formed from wet clay and then fired twice, once to bisque and then color washed in blue and fired for durability, this ornament would look lovely on your tree this year. She measures 3" X 3" and has been glazed with a blue wash and then wiped so that the color stays in the crevices and brings out the detail.

I make mosaics with broken dishes (pique assiette) but also make them with my whimsical clay tiles. I also teach beginner mosaic classes. You can find information on my webite; http://www.enchantedchina.net. click on classes.

Both of these were molded from wet clay, fired to bisque and then glazed with a Celtic green wash, these pendants were then fired again for durability. They are the Celtic triard and green man. Each measures approximately 2".

They are ready to wear, just put on a cord or chain, or let your creative juices loose and create a necklace around them by wirewrapping, beading or where ever your imagination takes you.

I am also experimenting with glazes. Sometimes things don't turn out like you expect, but then sometimes they are better! I'm working with some high fire crackle glazes for my pendants.

The large hand-stamped fairy is 4 1/2" wide with "Fairy Crossing" running across the top and then a texture design was stamped around the edges. Attached with gold tone wire are some of my clay fired beads, as well as, foiled and glass beads. I then finished this lovely piece with a textured heart pendant.

The whole piece measures over 7" and would look lovely in any room in your home.

I hope you keep checking back as you never know what you may find in my shop! And please check out my blog on Indiepublic.

Now don't just sit there, go break something!
