One of the segments I am doing is Building an Architectural Style. The concept is based on all of the "building" and home repair stuff that has been going on around my house and city lately. I wanted to incorporate industrial textures and colors with some actual found objects (screws, rusty washers, old hardware) and blend them into house shaped pendants. I used an epoxy clay called Apoxie that I got from Sherri Haab's Shop to make all of the samples. It was really fun to make something out of a clay-like substance that is different than my usual ceramic materials. I am very interested in exploring new materials lately, so this feels right at "home"!
