Maynard E. Bunny

I've not worked with metal clay for several weeks now, but yesterday I tried my hand at a different clay.  No I'm not giving up metal clay, just taking a little vacation.

We are on Pine Island, FL taking a little break from the winter weather.  To get to the island one has to drive through a little burgh known as Matlacha.  The buildings on the main road are brightly colored and even though I've never been to Mexico, it reminds me of it.

My favorite Gallery there is the Wild Child Gallery which every so often has artists displaying their craft outside in the courtyard.  It was at one of these that I met Lenea Howe who taught the class I took.

I won't go into a lot of detail about how we made our bunnies but I will share photos of our finished work.  And, say that paper clay feels really nice to work with and it was lots of fun.

The bunnies.

Mine is the purple bunny.  His name is Maynard E Bunny and he is a Flower Child.
