And yet another vessel...
This little guy was created using bronze metal clay. I just love that stuff...so forgiving, so many possibilities! After stamping the design into the flat sheet of clay, I formed the tube shape, fitted it to the bottom piece, and allowed it to dry. Once dry, I drilled holes on the sides and fired it in my kiln. Out came a gorgeous, golden-bronze vessel, all ready to receive any manner of treasured bits and pieces. I had in my bead stash these lovely, multi-colored sapphires, which I rosary wrapped to support the vessel.
