Mike's Art

For some time Mike has wondered about the clay we find on the beach, wondering if anyone had ever sculpted from it. While we were charging our cellphone one night with a neighbors generator (during TerreMOTO), we found someone who had indeed done things with the beach clay. He said he baked it in his bread oven, and has had much experience with it, so Mike got excited and the next day got to it.

His first creations. Turns out he did sculpting back in high school art class, and has a real apptitude for it. What he didn't remember, he looked up online and now has a wealth of information on the subject.

Gathering up "tools". He will let his creations dry for some time and then either take them to the bread oven, or more probable...he will have his own kiln (He's already online reading up on it).  Then his creations will be painted, some of them he says he will give to me to paint, that'll be fun.

Another walk on the beach, and more clay to be gathered, so many treasures on the beach ( for free) we almost need to get a wheeled cart! Not a bad problem to have...(free art supplies)

So...stay tuned, the adventure continues!
