|Susan Lenart Kazmer's Figurative Sculpture...her class was based around where you can take jewelry making. This piece actually holds a variety of jewelry which enhances the overall look and concept. It's just brilliant! The figure itself is made from ICE resin which was casted from a mold that she taught us to make first. The entire 2 day class was exciting and filled to the brim with techniques.|
|A student's work from SLK's class. Had too many photos to post. I'm just glad to blog about these.|
|From Diane Cook's class "Framed" we made necklaces with photos framed with Mother of Pearl buckles which were in our kits for class. I actually learned how to drill holes in the MofP under water. What a thrill to be able to do it. This is one of Diane's pieces that I admired. A photo below taken with Diane, I am wearing what I created in class.|
|These are student pieces made in Lisa Pavelka's "Framed" class using Art Clay which is created using torch firing. I particularly like the ones that have the black and white stripe edge. My piece did not as it just didn't work out. I was however, thrilled beyond belief to be able to create with Art Clay using the torch. At one time you could only finish with a kiln which I wasn't willing to purchase know my "moving on to other things" attitude. I first learned of Lisa when I was working with polymer clay which she is proficient in. It was a good class.|
|My final class was with Debbi Simon teaching casting and making pieces from originals that I love and am selective about what I want to do with it. The technique taught feed me to create another into resin and make it look like a bronze metal piece as shown here. These are actually resin with bronze metal powder mixed in. It was fascinating and I was filled with ideas by the time I left the class. Debbi is a great teacher as are they all. She teaches for Beaducation and is very knowledgeable about so many different techniques. I am glad to have discovered her.|

Art Unraveled is one of my favorite teaching venue because I can drive there, it has fabulous classes/teachers, it is well organized by Linda and Chuck and I get to visit with lots of old and new friends.
Speaking of friends, I once again stayed with my wonderfully brilliant and creative friend, JoAnna Pierotti and her sweet and loving husband, Ron. Each time I stay with them, I get to know Jo and Ron better and better and they have added to my life experience with gracious hospitality and friendship. I just love them both...and my puppy face, Willow too. I am blessed to call them friends. I look forward to seeing and sharing time with them again, hopefully next year.
