Designing by Flashlight...

Sometimes when I get on a creative roll, it's hard to stop.  I couldn't sleep and ended up sculpting all night.  Even when the power went out (in hopefully the last winter storm of the year), I grabbed my flashlight and kept on working.

Once I've finished the molds, I press out prototypes in polymer clay.  These help me refine the designs and if need be, carve the mold again and do a second take.  Some of these are destined to be pressed out in metal clay or porcelain and turned into pendants.  Keep your eyes peeled for what's to come!
