This week, for my 2016 Polymer Clay Challenge, I went back to a comfort zone I didn’t know I had and made mini pendant sized vessels. I was intending to make a yarn bowl, but there is an upcoming celebration for the new baby in the family so I was asked to make a wishpot for her.
What’s a wishpot? I came up with the idea when my girls were babies and we had a welcome party for them. Family and friends spoke their good wishes for the new baby (like fairy godmothers) and blew into the pot. Afterwards I glued the lid on to keep the wishes inside. I’m keeping them safe for when my girls are old enough to wear jewellery.
I made one of them quite minimalist with a faux cork stopper, but I couldn’t resist making another one that was more florid. I’ll let baby’s mum choose :).
They are quite dinky as befitting a baby. I have tied a cord around the lip of my girls’ vessels to make them into pendants.
