Turning the Tables on Cynthia




Hello. I'm Baaaaack! Well I just spent a fabulous week on a clay retreat. What can be better than spending a week claying with friends, having a bell ring when food is ready (with no dishes to wash!) and learning new and exciting techniques from some talented clay artists? Not much! Throw in some chocalate and you one happy camper! I thought I take the opportunity to turn the tables on Cynthia Tinapple. I am sure that most of you know her from her website PolymerClayDaily.com. She has been nice enough to feature some of my work so I figured the least I could do would be to repay the kindness. While on retreat (when she wasn't stuck on page 23) she was working on polymer rocks. These were similar to rocks you might find on hills or mounds. Or perhaps found between crevices or creases in the well formed earth. Some may even be found deep in the valleys. Although some may find smooth and rounded rocks to be of their liking, Cynthia prefers flat rocks with petroglyphs. When strung together, Cynthia's rocks create a lovely curve. We all hope Cynthia rocks on with her stones. Although I am sure there are some who'd prefer to get their rocks off.

  2. I sent Cynthia's two photos to my friend who works in the editorial department at Playboy. She was impressed! I gave her Cynthia's contact information and your blog address. She may contact you for more photos of Cynthia. My friend thought doing a small article featuring a talented curvaseous real woman would be interesting. Not really, I'm just kidding also. Loved your post today. Laughed till I cried.
