Yikes! I see have not written a post in a year! Seems to be a pattern with me! I have been working in the studio! At least that’s my excuse! Here is a photo of my sponge holder. It holds the sponge vertically for faster drying discouraging bacteria growth.
I have some pieces which are not on etsy shop so I thought I would show them here! They are some of most popular.
I am working on new designs for the spring. Some new pendants and wedding cake toppers.
I am so excited to have entered into the world of “etsy” at etsy.com/shop/hheaslip. For awhile, I have been trying to figure out how to keep working in clay because of physical limitations. I have found that I can make small items and have designed some clay pendants that I am really excited about. I am also designing a line of custom made wedding cake toppers and tops for all special occasions.
So here are some finished cake toppers
love birds and oyster with pearls. The adirondack chairs are in progress. The chairs have been a challenge! After making several sketches and a pattern out of book binders paper, I rolled out slabs of clay and began cutting. It took several tries to construct the two here. Finally I realized that I had to approach it like a carpenter would. I put together the chair back, seat and arms separately and then joined the components together to make the chair. Three days and many hours later these two are the result. Keep your fingers crossed for the first firing. If they make it throught that, they should survive the second and final glaze firing!
I have lots of new work at the “Harden Gallery” located on Rte.6A (Main St.) in Barnstable Village and at “Cafe Re- Design and Garden Art” on Pearl Street in Hyannis. Pearl Street is just off of Main Street near the Sturgis Charter School and is rapidly becoming the center for the Arts in Hyannis. There are lots of new Galleries there. Please check it out! I am currently working on a Cake Topper for a wedding on August 9th. The Bride has requested a pair of Adirondack chairs for the top of her cake. I will post photos of the work in progress later!
