In any clay session I am left with small bits of clay at the end. Usually they are dry and not very workable. I do various things with it so as not to waste it. Here are some examples from a couple of October days.
You see a tiny tile. I am fond of making these little talisman-like objects. This one is about 2″ x 2″.
The clay “rocks” are balls of clay (they have to dry an extra long time before being fired so that they will not explode in the kiln) with impressions punched into them and then colored with Velvet underglaze.
The sunshines are a variation of the ones I used to make – instead of putting their features on in relief work, I incised them with a rubber-tipped tool.
