This polymer clay inro is hot out the oven and still needs a good sanding. I’m a bit behind for this week’s Polymer Clay Challenge, because I spent too long decorating last week’s bowl.

The surface pattern is inspired by this month’s Art Bead Scene challenge. I plan to do another blog about that once I’ve got it finished and threaded together. It reminds me of something vintage – perhaps chevron trade beads?

My initial idea was for it to be a pendant but now I’m wondering if it’s a bit too large for that. I looked up inro sizes on the internet and after finding out that there is no average size, that it is the average size of an inro.

You can see the other vessels I have made so far this year or join in on Flickr.
