This new batch of Picarello/Lehocky hearts was too beautiful to pass by. Julie Picarello tidied her studio and forwarded those pesky tail ends and bothersome bits to Ron Lehocky.
Ron never met a polymer scrap he couldn’t use. Look at the lovely collaborative patterns that he melded into hearts (more here). He’ll peddle the pins for the Kids Center during Julie’s 2-day class in Indianapolis. Here are Ron and Julie on Facebook.
The yellow pieces below are Julie’s samples for Magpie Mokume. In this version she adds leaf and inks and anything within reach into her stacks of clay colors.
