I had the chance to take a workshop with the polymer clay great, Donna Kato this weekend. She is such a sweet person and so modest about the GREAT talent she posseses! I also had the honor of her seeing one of my pet portrait beads in the gallery where the class took place, and she asked if I could do one of her faithful friend, an adorable Australian Shepherd named "Doc". Of course I jumped at such a request and felt very special to be asked. Here is the piece I did for her, and I was floored when she told me to pick out a bracelet in return! I cannot believe I now have a Donna Kato original in my collection! It is going to be framed and hung in the studio for sure!
