New work and more work listed

I'm happy to start working through all that I have to list.  I'm starting with pod sets because I know people have waited patiently...you are all wonderful!






 Some simple graphic crackle...



Ancient looking and colorful...






A landscape set...

Mokume gane set...
Curved and tiled teeth...

I have been working on more bracelets and finding a woody finish that I quite love while I work out the form.  I can see lots of possibilities for these down the line with different surfaces...







The listings for the pods will be up shortly!  Still thinking about the bracelets.
Two posts, consecutive days...what is the world coming too?

What amazing work and I can't even begin to imagine how great they will be once Tracy puts them to use in her work! I'm in awe.

Love your work. I have the Polymer Clay Global Perspectives book and have been practicing your hollow forms technique. In reading through your blog at one time you said you were going to do a tutorial on how to decorate hollow forms while being made. Is that tutorial available? I would love to purchase it.
Thanks Pat

Love, love your pod beads and have tried in my bumbling way to follow instructions to make them in 'Global Perspectives'. But the softened clay is too sticky and I can't, no mater how often I try, get even, thin sided beads.Why don't you come to Australia and give some master classes. I'd be first to line up. Mog

I'd love to come to Aus, my mother and sisters were born there and I have a ton of relatives there....but seriously anonymous, who are you? If you send me your email address, perhaps I can help you with your difficulties with my short tutorial. Perhaps you added too much softener to your clay....
My complete tute including a video will be out shortly, perhaps this will solve your problem and I won't have to come to Australia. Sad - have never been to my mother's birthplace!

Hi! I don't understand how your bangles/bracelets work. At first I thought they were bangles but the ones shown on the actual arm are too tight to slide over a hand - so how they get on the arm? I'm mystified!

I love your bangles/bracelets but I'm trying to figure them out. Are they bangles? I thought so til I got to the last picture where they're actually on an arm. They're too tight to go over the wearer's hand. So how did the wearer get them on? I'm completely mystified. Can you tell me or is it a trade secret? :)
