A Folk Art Cross
When I lived in New Mexico I became familiar with the beautiful Mexican folk art pieces, in particular, the crosses. I love the bright colors and simple shapes of their folk art. I made crosses there and decided to bring that back to my design table here in NW Pennsylvania. This cross measures 23 inches long and has some rectangular tiles I made from polymer clay. I have also included some smaller pottery pieces I made while attending a pottery class in NM. The remaining details include small pieces of turquoise and some old buttons. My next project is a larger, 4-foot cross. This should be fun!
