When I’m away from my studio I still like to create. I have a couple of projects I’ve been working on recently that use a variety of materials other than clay. These are more portable and utilize other creative skills.
These special 'LUVBOTS' were developed for a Real Estate Agent to distribute to her own special client list on Valentines Day. Exploring other types of creative media helps me play with different elements that might one day end up in one of my finished clay creations.
These felt ornaments will be embroidered and assembled for a special group of runners to commemorate the 2018 Raccoon Mountain Half Marathon in Chattanooga, TN. Each hang tag will be customized with the runner's name. When I can't work in clay, it's fun to figure out what else I can make and what materials I'll use.
Of course, knitting remains a daily creative habit. When I'm away from the studio, I make sure to have lots of stitching projects with me. I've finished this capelet project pictured above. Next, I and will start on a shawl by the designer Casapinka appropriately called "All Points South".
