Steampunk on the Move

Well, after trading emails with Col, I think I got the idea of what she was looking for.  I rolled out the clay and cut out 2 teddybears sitting, just like a stuffed teddy would.  Once they were dried, cleaned and in the kiln firing, I grabbed the faux leather I had found in the abyss of my craft closet.  The iconic bomber hat kept coming to mind, so I decided to follow that to see where it would lead.

steampunkteddy2Our son, Shay, took apart the clock for me so I had many parts to choose from.  I have a tin full of buttons, they are remnants from soooooo many projects over the years.  Included in the tin, are the buttons my sister gave me from the cleaner she worked at back in high school.  I found the buttons added some needed interest with the clock workings.  Steven found some hardware also that fit right in too.  Now I needed to commit to this idea I had drafted and get painting.

Off to paint, Cyn


About designbycyn

Sonoma County, California ceramic enthusiasts Cyn and Steven Gradek have worked in the clay medium since 1996. They had a retail store where they held classes and provided the essentials for fellow ceramic enthusiasts. The business evolved into producing for other retail outlets and artist. Which quickly grew and they closed the retail storefront and concentrated on the wholesale business. With their 3 children raised and on their own, they had time to pursue their own creativity. Cyn learned how to embroider from her Grandma Cirner at a young age. After that she found sewing, cross stitching, crocheting, well you get the jist, LOL. She hasn't met a craft that she hasn't liked. Blogging was suggested by her youngest daughter, Colleen. At first it was a battle to get her to try it, but eventually Cyn started to enjoy the exercise. The blog on Cyn's website was limiting, so Colleen got her started with Wordpress. Hope you enjoy her Adventures with Creativity!
