Work in Progress: Frolicking Pisces

Sculpted Polymer Fish Base

"Martini Glass" Bowl

So what do you do when you have some polymer clay and an empty martini glass? You whip up a water-inspired bowl and a couple of frolicking Pisces to hold it up.

If all goes well these two pieces are about to become one (hopefully) interesting miniature bowl. I "saw" the bowl in my head first. The theme for the Polymer Clay Artists Guild of Etsy's May Challenge, "Bowls and Vessels," probably had a little something to do with that.

I molded the bowl shape in a martini glass and created ocean color scheme with alcohol inks. Once I saw the bowl taking shape, the "ocean" called for some sea life so I sculpted some polymer fish to serve as the base. They'll get a hit or two of mica powder before I bake them.


  1. Great fishies, Marie, and the whole idea is wonderful. I really like it! Good luck in the challenge.

  2. Wow Marie! This looks awesome... I can't wait to see your finished piece!

  3. Love your thinking. Such innovation.

  4. Thanks everyone! It is almost finished.I'm cutting it awfully close to the deadline this time!


Ooh,a comment! How delightful.
