All of my clay items are hand sculpted from polymer clay. My wine glasses start with a glass as a base, then clay is added to the stem and base of the bowl. Metallic clay pieces are made from black clay, and then enhanced with various shades of mica powder pressed into the clay before baking. Colored items are made from different colored clays, and then darkened after baking with acrylics to emphasize the three-dimensionality and to give the item an aged look. The clay is then finished with a clear acrylic sealant. Each item is unique, no molds are used.
