Polymer Clay Purses

I received a commission to make a fish themed purse. It's a fun project because it involves purple and green which is a colour combination that I love. I haven't made a purse for several months and it's going to be a pleasant break from the production work I was doing in preparation for the shows.

I made this purse for a wearable art display in the spring. I was beginning to experiment with the flower theme that I've used a lot on the teapots. I used thick buna for the handle. These purses have been used as functional hadbags or decorative vessels. Purses with long shoulder straps and hanging beads are used as decorative wall hangings. A lady at the last show was looking for one with specific colours to hang in a narrow alcove in her home.

I'll begin work on the fish purse tomorrow!
