Making "Parts"

I just seem to be jumping from one thing to another lately. Although, I can’t complain, it keeps life interesting. I have run out of doll parts to offer on my website and ETSY and I realized I didn’t have enough "parts" to complete my squiggly paper mache cones shown a few posts down. I also have a few other ideas in mind that require clay parts, so I have had to take time out for a kiln firing.

cool photo of your ceramic studio...the filled kiln is a somewhat disturbing image, but that's what makes it striking.Your little babies are treasures!

Now that's a lot of doll parts! That must be great to own a kiln. There's a shop here I used to go to where you select a piece, paint it anyway you want to, then they fire it for you there. I used to have a lot of fun there, escaping my life and blissfully painting there for a couple hours at a time.

I know just what you mean about being all over the place today. Right before I read your post, I was thinking the same thing myself...that I just seem to be getting lured away in too many directions and I'd better focus if I want to accomplish anything today.

Your ceramic studio is very cool! I love all the body parts. Are these all your own designs?
Maybe you might know where to find parts for a china head doll? Or, something similar?

I want to come play in your ceramic studio. It is so organized and I love organized studios.

Like Dianne, I found the kiln filled with doll parts a bit disturbing. That image is then juxtaposed by the beautiful faeries that come to life from all these parts. And that is what makes your art so original and unique.
