Getting Creative While Making a Fiber Clay Bird Sculpture with Joanie Wolter

“I just want to make it fluffier. So I’m just taking my little picker stick and I’m seeing what it looks like. I’m like, not even like this, but this is playtime. So you can try it. If you don’t like it, you just fix it. You can do that. You don’t have to be worried that, Oh my God, I ruined this piece because I don’t like what I did. That’s just not how this kind of clean works. And actually, I don’t want it to go on the side like that. It’s not going to go off the side. So I’m just going to kick that off there. Cut this off here and see how this looks when I put it on the front of him. So return him around so you guys can see as well. So here he is. And I’ve screwed up his tail a little bit, but then I’m re fluff it, it will be fine. So this would come in front like this almost looks like an apron. Now he’s turned him into a real native American, I’m going to cut this as a, too big of a piece. If I just wanted to be feathers. If I wanted to dress him up in an apron, that would be another story I could do that, but that wasn’t my intention. So this will be here kind of laying in over.”

Using Sea Glass When Freeform Shaping Glass & Stones with Jack Hoque

“This is a lot of fun. Definitely love, love doing this type of work, as you can see, I slipped there, but that’s okay. Cause no Polish to worry about slipping on at the moment. This is really working very nicely. I’m digging, working on sea glass. Maybe I’ll go to the coast after this and go find my own sea glass because you know, there’s nothing better than being able to find it yourself and then finish it. Nice long strokes on there.”
