I am open to making one off custom designs

WHAT I DO

Original air dry clay wall hangings and decor items

I decide on a design and work with the air dry clay like you would with kiln dried clay but it is left to dry out over a period of days.  I use clay made by Jovi in Spain who have been manufacturing art supplies for over 75 years.  The clay comes in three colours – natural white, terracotta and stone grey.

Clay Design

Clay is rolled, cut and smoothed into a design.
Shells are then pressed into the clay.

Dry

The clay work is left to dry slowly for several days.

Finishing

Once the work is dried and sanded, paint and a water based varnish give a splash proof seal.
