birdie pendants

I like clay. I'm not very good at using it, but I like it!

I've tried porcelain with not alot of luck (very tricky stuff and wasn't so sure about the firing. How do they get it so white?). I've tried earthenware clay. Now i'm playing with Paper Clay (which is just like earthenware but has some paper pulp mixed through it)

I've also discovered oxides! My favourite is magnesium oxide. You paint it on, wipe it off leaving it in the lines etc, fire it and voila - instant loveliness!

These are some bird pendants I made. I'm really happy with how they turned out. Think I might list them on etsy. Or maybe madeit? I'm thinking $15 each...
