Sculpting Hot Clay Cars!

March 29, 2018

In March of 2017 I applied to, and was accepted to be in the Clay Sculpting Certification program at the Center of Creative Studies. Located in Detroit, Michigan, the classroom is on the 11th floor of a beautiful building.

We Sculpt cars out of clay BEFORE the real deal!! Yep. Before Manufacturing a real car, we sculpt them from clay,  The clay is Hot and it hardens as it cools.  This process is fascinating. I look forward to a job in this field.

This is 25% of the real size, 1/4, 1:4 !! in progress… Enjoy!

Where will we go? Earth is gone!Glass inspiration!Recycled art

September 8, 2008

This is one of the marbles I have made with my running man murrini. Just a thought; where will we go if this world comes to an end. On the other side the earth is exploding. This one sold before I had a chance to list it.  

I posted it in my bead artists gallery, and it was featured in a few moments. TOOT TOOT!

Reality- They say the ice bergs will be melted by 2050. Reality-the rain forest will be sand in 2100. I am concerned for my children and grandchildren.  While this lye’s in the back of my head, I can not help but to make some art about that.

Art is great at creating awareness about what is going on in the world today.

Another project I am involved with is giving my scrap glass to a Artist furniture designer friend,Paul Hickman. He uses recycled materials to create his work.  That is another great idea, that is art that is actually making a difference in the world. (Less landfill, and it encourages others to do the same.) I will share some pictures shortly.  Go check out his work. And! His son (under 10 years old) is very creative as well, he has been collaborating with his Dad to create art prints. 


Inspiration! A “circus tree”

February 26, 2008
 I borrowed this from a MYSPACE bulletin by Katana  

( a really cool friend of mine)this was my

favorite tree out of all the trees she wrote about. It

resembles the skeleton of a cacti…

(I found one years ago)

#9. Circus Trees

As a hobby, bean farmer

 Axel Erlandson [wiki] shaped trees – he pruned,

 bent, and grafted trees into fantastic shapes

and called them “Circus Trees.” For example,

to make this “Basket Tree” arborsculpture,

Erlandson planted six sycamore trees in a

circle and then grafted them together to form

the diamond patterns.

I am inspired! Torchin’ Tuesday is looking like a whole new day!
