Day 30: Clay Cat

I have always wanted an excuse to play with those colored clay polymers you can buy in the art supply stores.  No more waiting.  Pink kitty is here!

The assignment was to use clay in way new to me.  I’ve made functional things like clay bowls formed on potter’s wheels and a big 38 pound coiled pot once.  I’m pretty sure I made little ashtrays in grammar school (no one smokes in my family, so who knows what I was thinking), but I don’t remember making just a silly clay form.  And I’ve never played with these colored clays which is just so fun!  The best part was picking which outrageous color the kitty would be. And bonus: the pink has tiny sparkles in it!

As I walked around the craft store and saw supplies for other projects, I kept thinking of other people’s 365 projects too – birds, flowers, owls, etc.  The projects are taking over my brain! … and I like it.


Sept 4, 2011: Clay kitty goes outside for a photo shoot. Doesn’t he look so natural in this setting?! Hee hee! Actually, he looks like a cute but poisonous mushroom trying to lure in the unsuspecting!

    This is my favorite kitty so far. Awesome!

  2. I might even like this one as much as I like our real life cats!
