Just for grins….Dan Cormier’s self-portrait "Astronaut Inro" was made for the "Moves in Polymer Clay" invitational at The Brookfield Craft Center in Connecticut in 2003. The space boy is Dan at age 6.

This is the most complex and ambitious inro project Dan says he’s ever tackled. It even has its own ‘flying saucer’ display stand, complete with glass bell jar astronaut chamber and 2.5 rpm motor.

"Astronaut Inro" open shows the four interlocking chambers, and the helmut lid.

Read about Dan’s recent work and upcoming classes in the current issue of PolymerCAFE.
