It almost makes me want to do more experiments with clay...but I doubt that I will ever be as good or imaginative as you...I love all your pieces.

Your pieces are ALL fabulous! I bought clay once, but never baked anything! I may try again, someday!

Thanks ladies. Charleen, the first time I did it I was afraid it wouldn't turn out, but it's one of those things that's hard to mess up - whatever results you get are pretty cool.

Well I think I will start playing with my polyclay just as soon as I get a pasta machine...and an assortment of poly clay.
