ECC Retrospection I

Flaring is a nice technique, which Christine Dumont teached at the ECC in Madrid. To flare and still having even stripes after this is a challenge and Christines Tubularium Pendants and Butterfly Beads are so perfect and beautiful (with even stripes). I think, I’ll need a few years with daily practice to get these stripes in this way, unfortunately I don’t have any time for this. That’s why I made no stripes and Skinner Blends instead. 🙂 Christines workshop was gorgous, in the night after I got some ideas for own flared pieces and my fingers started to tickle, as always when I want to clay (it’s not easy to fall asleep with tickling fingers). My first piece was just a model and also had crackles after it was cured (and I missed my tools and wire). But it was the base for these pendants, which I made after the ECC at home and which you can see in different views in the pictures. They look like little crazy hats to me (and I love the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland), so I namend them Mad Hat Pendants. 🙂  I really like Christines technique and I had much fun while I made the pendants. But I have a goal: I want to create one or more pieces for every ECC workshop, I attended. So, what’s next?
