clay shapes

 Right before our Christmas break, my fellow co-worker, Deb Jones, brought in the start of her beautiful handmade clay Crèche she had begun working on. She had been experiment with a chunk of Laguna Dry Hard Clay I gave her a couple weeks prior and I was thrilled to see her adorable creations. Passing supplies, like clay, along to people who don't work in the craft department at Martha but enjoy making things, is something I implement. Deb is an artist like most of the people I work with, but one of another kind—she paints the faces of all the guests, with makeup, that appear on Martha's show. 
How sweet are her sleeping donkeys?!
And the little sheep!
 She also made her own version of my clay mushrooms and a garden snail to slug on by them!
