Seabasstiania Warrior Fish!

seabasstiania front oil 795282 Seabasstiania Warrior Fish!

She was a group birthday gift made for Debra Quartermain . She started out as a “fish fish”, but had an unfortunate accident in the oven when she jumped off her stick during the final cure. Her left fin broke off completely and when something breaks the best way I know of to fix it is to make it better than before. Warrior fish with adorned battle scars was born. She’s made from Kato Polyclay and the beautiful Lisa Pavelka stamp for decorating the base . Helen, Frank and Mindy– Seabasstiania leader of the deep sea bass thanks you!

The Celadon Dreamer – OT

mZ celadon 707492 The Celadon Dreamer   OT
The woman’s shape is a prototype of a sculpture I made for Kristine of Krafty Lady Art Moulds. I had some fun with the prototypes and made a couple boxes that I then shipped off to a couple of wonderful people and amazing artists, Debra Quartermain and Marie Browning. They put their one of a kind talents to work and made the boxes their own. This one went to Marie Browning and the box is the happier for it!

Another Dreamer (similar to this but not Celadon!) has been sent as an auction item to the Indiana Polymer Clay Guild’s benefit for Ponsawan Silapiruti’s daughter Ada. The amazing Christi Friesen is teaching workshops at the benefit. For more details about Ada and the workshops go to

My Celadon project is a bracelet I made for someone who was leaving North Bay and heading to SF to continue her studies. She always wore cool jewellery so I wanted to make her something special to wear. The flower is a mold that Michelle made and the leaves are Michelle’s designs for Krafty Lady Art Moulds. The bracelet features a Swarovski crystal bead and additional celadon polymer clay beads.

I love these flowers and leaf combinations and I have one in reverse too – pink leaves and celadon flower – it’s funky but I love it too. HB
