Air plants at Phydeaux!

I've been thinking about how to use tillandsias (air plants) since earlier this summer:  felted cozies (didn't like the prototype), knit doilies (ugh), glass vessels covered in crocheted lace (meh).

And then it hit me.

What could I make with polymer clay?  A shallow vessel, similar in style to my filigree buttons?

Yes and yes.

And so I did.

Opening a whole new world of possibilities.

I have both handcrafted polymer dishes and tillandsia with dishes in my Chez Phydeaux shop now!
