stag beetle – hirschkäfer

at the beginning of this year i heard in radio that the insect of the year 2012 will be the stag beetle (hirschkaefer – insekt des jahres 2012) . i am always fascinated by insects and so i decided honor this creature with a polymer clay cane. i started in january and it took me a couple of weeks till my cane was done. i always have the problem after building and reducing the cane – and this perfect moment when you cut through the cane the first time – that i reached what i wanted and do not have an urge to work with it any more.

my university studies kept me busy and only last week i started to use my beautiful cane.

here are some pics:

i want to show you my latest photo project.

i asked 6 friends to let me photograph them. they brought an object of their choice, which i placed as a shadow in connection with them.

(if you click on the gallery you can see them bigger.)

i like how it turned out. let me know what you think about it.

take care, mm

Shoe Be Do with CraftWerk

a few weeks ago i had the chance to make a pair of shoes myself. i took a shoe-making-course with bernadette. she is a gifted and patient teacher – which you need- because it does take a while till the shoes are done ;).

it was a wonderful experience and my shoes are really comfy.

here they are:

shoes made at a course of craftwerk

if you want to make your own pair of shoes, there are courses coming up.

please contact berndette on her website CraftWerk.

take care, mm
