I have this pair of old fashioned metal scissors. I’m not quite sure where I got them from, but they have been in my clay tools for some time now. I was using them to cut paper templates and guides for my work until one day I decided to press the handles into some clay. The rest, as they say, is history. I practically never use these scissors for cutting any more – they have been moved permanently out of my tools jar and into my texture making jar.
I particularly love how their texture looks on this planter. It always fascinates me to see my textures distorted by the form making process and this one is no exception. I like the extra emphasis the belly-ing out gives to the fullness of the handle imprints.
