ARTIST STATEMENT

About 25 years ago I needed a new barrette and so I pulled out the clay to see what I could do. I absolutely fell in love with it and continued to make more. I was asked by a hairdresser if I would make some for her to use and that was the beginning of Becky Sue Creations. I make wearable art that ranges from barrettes and jewelry to sewing and crocheting tools.

MY PROCESS:
I use a technique called millefiori which is the same as Italian glass makers use. A flower cane and other designs are handmade from clay. Thin slices of the flower cane are applied to the background and rolled flat. The piece is hand rolled so the leaves and flowers are embedded into the clay. The clay is cut to the shape needed. All pieces are one-of-a-kind and represents many aspects of nature.

WHERE I SELL:
I sell at markets in Seaside, Astoria, and Ilwaco during the summer. I have a store on etsy that carries my buttons, sewing tools, crochet tools and earrings.
