BEACHCOMBER IMPRESSIONS: A NEW LINE OF CLAY OBJECTS

Weather permitting, I walk to Beachcomber Park with small blocks of clay looking for interesting rock formation to press my clay against; I need a surface that once imprinted into the clay will give a "rocky" character to it. Then I start carving out the clay to create a container: a goblet, a box or little vases.
Some other times, I press a slab instead of a block onto the rocks, stretching it at the same time; it can then become a plate or be shaped as a vase. 
It is a perfect activity for warm sunny days when the rocks are dry!
If you are curious to see the results, my Beachcomber Impressions are on display at my studio-gallery. Stop by!
