The June PCAGOE Challenge theme is "Bowls and Vessels." There is some absolutely stunning entries this month, like this fabulous teapot by Berit Hines! Berit does some fabulous work and is a fellow caner. All this month's entries are all definitely worth a look for Father's Day or for a special gift idea. The voting goes through June 7, so don't forget to vote for your chance to win a prize from the generous donations of our members!
This is my entry - the pretty mini salt and pepper shakers that you may recognize from my Butterfly cane tutorial in last month's Newsletter. I've been experimenting with different patterns of flowers and butterflies and ways of using and coordinating left over canes. The two canes for these cute little salt & pepper came from the same basic petal cane from my pansy tutorial. I'll be doing more experimenting - some scrap cane ideas and also I've been looking into writing a comprehensive millefiori book for ipads and iphones using ePub. Now it's time for a few more coordinating colors! Back to the clay table!
