A walk down memory lane..and longing for spring

I’m teaching a class this afternoon for ISU’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (formerly called College for Seniors) about polymer clay and metal clay.  I went through all my images of the last 12 or so years to pull together a slide show.  (I could have gone back further, but 12 years ago, I got a computer virus that turned all my graphic files into nonsense–back things up!!)

Seeing all my old work made me a little nostalgic.  Particularly, I may have given myself the creative impulse to do a few eggs again.  After all, Easter and spring have to come sometime.  Those who know me from a long time ago know that I’ve done a lot of polymer covered eggs in my day.  Hmm, wonder how to combine a little pmc on an egg….

A few oldies but goodies from my stroll through my files:

Iowa Autumn, shown at the White House Easter display, 1997

Iowa Autumn got the whole thing started.  Then another:

Have a great day, and hope you’re dug out from snow

    That Statehouse dome egg is absolutely the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen Ms Kimle do. Its just …. beautiful! So intricate and – full of integrity. It exudes integrity! Its quite Faberge like. Thankyou so much for sharing…although I would LOVE to see a bigger piccy 🙂
