Angel Inspired

By Janet Hickey / January 30, 2014

Angel Inspired   Sometimes my art is intentional (if it were more so I’d get more done).  More times than not my art is inspirational – meaning my hands just start creating. A few months ago I was attempting to use up the last of my B-Mix clay (porcelain content – fired to cone 6)…

This is the last scheduled post Google held on to. I’ll get to current stuff next. Man – I really did a good job on Humpty. He got a collar, legs, boots and hands. I knew I should have taken a picture before I left the clay studio last week. This Tuesday Humpty got out…

Oil Lamp, Napkin Ring and a Blush Brush

By Janet Hickey / February 21, 2011

My daughter Laura says I have artists ADD. It got the best of me this last week. I’ve had this project on my work table for over a year. I assembled and/or sculpted all the parts but didn’t move forward because the “belly” required being filled with sand and fish and poured with clear resin.…

Herm – Claymation

By Janet Hickey / February 10, 2011

This is the second installment of the clay figure I’m making in class. Since it’s gender is not definate – it’s name is Herm (about 12″-15″ tall and will hang on the wall). I decided to go with nondescript features since it’s only an 8 week class and features could take me a lot longer.…
