Since I have been furiously making items to sell at The Alliday Show and the Indie Emporium show, I decided I would give a little history on how I started working with paper clay. It all began when I started renovating our 1910 home and wanted to add some pizzaz to our stairwell. It was winter time and everything was dead and the skies were gray. I love color and decided I wanted to do a dimensional wall mural that would reflect what I wanted to see when I looked out the window. I began researching how I was going to accomplish this dimensional wall mural and came across paper clay. Here is what I ended up with.
I almost immediately fell in love with how easy, lightweight and versatile paper clay is. After this project I began looking for other ways to incorporate this medium into my creative endeavors. I never would have guessed back then that I would figure out a way to make jewelry, lights and bowls using paper clay.
I’m curious as to what interesting mediums you have used in your creative endeavors?
