Can't keep a Ginkgo down
A few posts back I was lamenting the fact that the Ginkgo tree along the path I walk to the studio had been trimmed. And, all the branches (and leaves) were no longer within my reach. (But some of the path has such low hanging branches that I have to duck to walk through there. Can't figure out why they weren't trimmed.)
Well, you can't keep a Ginkgo tree down. There were five little leaves breaking through where a branch had been cut off. So I was able to get one last leaf today to use with the metal clay.
Since we were working with copper clay today, I now have a copper version of the Ginkgo for a pendant. (At least in the greenware state. Will wait and see what happens when it's fired.)
