Our guild, North Texas Polymer Clay Guild once again had a Bottles of Hope Challenge. I created three entries, one for each category - Wings, By the Sea & Nature. The winners were determined by adding vote points. I'm very thrilled to have won 2 first place, 1 third and Best of Show. The criteria for the pieces is that they must be formed with a bottle that can be opened - inspirational messages are put inside the bottles for cancer patients. Here are the pieces I created for the challenge with detail images showing how they open.
Impish Mermaid received 3rd place.
Tree Elf received first place in the Nature category. He has mushrooms, birdnest with eggs, butterflies, leaves and vines on him.
The Winged Dragon received first place in the Wings category and Best of Show.
I really enjoy pushing the limits to see what I can come up with on these challenges.
