Prints back into clay
I mentioned that the work I was doing with collaging relief prints was working its way back into the clay jewelry. This image is a good example of what I mean. The clay bead uses some new patterned canes that Dave made in Santa Fe (note the desert colors), as well as several “shibori” cane images that he made over ten years ago. Color, patterning and caning are coming back into our work.
I made these two pieces independently and without being conscious of the similarity between them. When I noticed it, I sent this photo to Dave. His one word response back was……”Duh”.
