To make these bobbies, I began with a thin slab of smooth white stoneware clay from which to form the cabs. I textured the soft clay with one of my hand-carved stamps. Since each is made individually there may be very slight variations in size. The glaze is an appealing combination of medium sky blue and glossy semi-transparent brown.
I've finished the cabs meticulously, smoothing and glazing with care. Each disk shaped cab measures 3/4" (2.0cm) in diameter and under 1/8" (<.3cm) thick. They've been cemented to 2 1/2" (6.4cm) silver-plated bobby pins. Each bobby pin weighs less than 1/8th of an ounce (2 grams), so is not at all heavy.
Thanks for stopping by my shop!
