Molded Pendants

Pictures of the original and the bronze piece I made from the mold.

An old key.


Bali Coral made into a round pendant.

The next two are pieces that I picked up from a vendor of African beads and artifacts.


These are drawer pulls that I picked up in Tucson last August when Cris and I went to visit Anne.




Of course when I polish these up they are going to lose most of their color. Maybe I won't polish them too much...just a little to bring out some of the bronze.

The weekend is here so soon and even sooner it will be over. Most of the weekend I am free to work. I have a cuniform tear-away that I want to work with and a couple of new shapes I want to try. Hopefully I can get another batch in the kiln tomorrow night.

These are great--the Bali Coral is my fav, I think! Do you put this in the coconut filler or something else when you fire? Teri

Hi Teri, I am using the coal based carbon for all these pretty colors.

I think the pieces you made are better than the originals. They look like precious objects.
