These are some one of a kind pieces by me and Lisa Blackwell. She makes the gorgeous pmc boxes (intricately detailed on the sides and backs) and I fill them with clay and paint. The smallest (mushroom bezel) is 3/4" from top of bail to bottom-its tiny. I nearly went blind carving it. Now I'm completely smitten by their cuteness and don't want to sell them. Typical of me. They need to be encased in resin, to protect them, but this is like putting something in water, it flattens the space and diffuses the light, which can be cool, but lessens the depth. I'm thinking of floating a thin sheet of mica over the next batch. I'm so tired and so determined to finish 5 more tonight. I like a good challenge.
