Another Day, Another Clay

Another favorite technique is mokume gane (prounounced mock-you-may-gone-nay).  It involves stacking layers of contrasting colors of clay,  making impressions in the stack with different shaped objects, then slicing off layers of colorful clay to uncover beautiful patterns.  Here’s my latest attempt.  Again, I haven’t cured any of this yet and it will have an even more beautiful look once it’s cured and polished!

I’ve also added one of my favorite clay bales that coordinates with the rest of the pendant!  There’s more of this pattern to use to make some  matching beads.

Hopefully tomorrow I will shift gears and work on finishing some pieces.   I tend to LOVE to work with the clay and the half-finished projects are piling up!

Till tomorrow,
