Every year the North Texas Polymer Clay Guild has a December pot luck and swap that usually involves an ornament of some kind. This year since I am still liking fossils, I decided to incorporate them into an ornament of some kind. Usually I make ornaments with faces, but wanted something different for this year. We make 3 for trading, and I will receive 3 different ornaments to take home.

Swaps are wonderful ways to receive art from other artists, and I am looking forward to the swaps for this year.

The small round ones are the ones I will be trading with guild members, and the larger tear drop shapes are done with the addition of encaustic wax, and I will be keeping those for our tree this year.

New Fossils

It has been a long time since I last posted. We have been on vacation to Virginia to see John's family, and we are now back home. My mother-in-law has built a new family room on the back of her house, and commissioned me to do these pieces for her walls. All 3 involve encaustics, and 2 have the fossils done in polymer clay. Only the 2 with the fossils are posted-the other one is an abstract. Now I will have to get these shipped up north.
