My first 5-6 weeks have been all about learning tools and practicing. Here are more class work samples so you can see what I’m learning. And yes, by the end of class I will actually make something out of these:
The leaves were made by creating the shape out of copper wire, then pressing pieces of textured metal. You texture the metal with a metal press.
I have more, but this shows you what we are doing right now. I do need to solder a cabachon, but I want to find a cool enough piece to use.
I have my semester “to-do” list. I am required to make at least 4 pieces using a dozen or more techiniques. So far, I have plans to create at least 8 projects… at least that is my goal.
Later this week, I’ll visit Faith at her studio and work together on some projects. That should be fun.
Keep watching… almost finished with the heart quilt, and Faith loaned me a funny book to share with you all. Today, the kids and baby Jack are coming over, too, so it is time to update my Jack picture, too.
Happy Sunday! Carla
