A Wedding

At Thanksgiving my niece asked me if I would make a cake topper for her wedding. I was thrilled and honored that she would ask me!  We talked about what she wanted and I thought that I could probably make what she was wanting....well until I got to working on the pieces. For some reason after all these years  the Gremlin of self-doubt rears it's ugly head on occasion and I can't seem to get started on a project until I set myself a deadline and sit down and start smooshing clay. Yes, smooshing is a very technical sculpting term. On February 4th we were going to travel about 2.5 hours to Bloomington, IL to Rachel's shower and I wanted pieces to take to show to her to see if they were even a little bit close to what she was wanting. That would leave me some time to make new ones before the wedding. Well, I don't have to make new ones because she loved them!! Yay!!! I brought them back home to add a veil to the bride and a bow tie to the groom. So now I am ready to show them to you before I mail them off on Monday. Please meet Miss Rachel Penguin and Mr.Bill Bear who will soon be Mr & Mrs Bear..hehe... I just hope that the bear doesn't eat foul of any sort.


OH! I ended up sculpting these critters on blown chicken eggs in which I added beads so that they are rattles which I thought was appropriate since Rachel and Bill are musicians.

blessings, Zuda Gay
