Faux Ceramic Woven Clay Bowl

Hello Makers!

I recently went to a gallery to look at an all clay exhibit. There were ceramic bowls, sculptures and even painting using a bas relief technique. There was one artist that made huge somewhat abstract mechanical, industrial shapes; gears, tracks from a tank. All of the pieces were made out of various types of earthenware clay. The pieces all looked like genuine worn out metal...pretty cool, I thought.

Seeing this exhibit, got me thinking about how how polymer clay is so diverse; you can make just about anything look faux with this great medium. So I decided to make my own faux ceramic bowl.

I made this blue weave bowl using  Makin's Clay®; an air dry, no bake clay. I used clay, acrylic paint Makin's Professional® Ultimate Clay Extruder® for the strips, boy was it ever so nice to use for this project; no need to manually cut the strips. To learn more about how to make this piece, check out the Makin's Clay® Blog.
