not clown buttons

Here are some gigantic buttons I worked on during my last work night. They aren’t intended for clothing. I’ll show you soon what I am doing with them. All of this rolling-pin work is making me want a slab roller though. I need to renew my membership at my local clay guild so I can pop over there and crank out a pile of slabs. I have some other slab ideas I want to start on, too.

Speaking of the KC Clay Guild, I noticed that they are going to have a workshop with Meredith Host in November. I’m pretty excited about attending that. I have gotten out of the habit of going to the monthly workshops at the guild, and I need to remedy that. There are a couple other workshops around town that I would love to attend, but don’t know if I’ll be able to work it out financially or time-wise. At this point in my work, I feel like I need to invest more time than money into this and just get the basics really worked out. I am quite the education-junkie though, and I always have been, so I’m always interested in more classes than I can take. This year, I took an online class taught by Diana Fayt that was truly wonderful, so I’m also tempted by the new Creative Bug offerings.

Education. Junkie. (I suppose there are worse things to be.)
