Murrini Monday roundup, July – September

3/4 of the way through the year and my 2018 resolution to create a new murrini each week is still going strong!  It has been a crazy busy year with so much going on (except blog writing :-S ) but I’ve still stuck to my appointment each week to get on the torch and work at improving my murrini making skills.  Each Monday over on my Instagram account I post a new murrini each week.  For those that don’t follow over there, this is 3 months all one shot!

The summer was a fun one for murrini.  I really want to try making faces, so started this set off with a theme month of eyes for “Jul-eye”.  😀  One of the eyes was inspired by a flower sculpture in the Kenzo world commercial that won an award at the Cannes Lions last year.  Another eye is that of a famous person – hopefully by the end of the year I’ll show you who (in murrini of course).   There’s a murrini of a couple of Chinese characters that represent my new Chinese name.  Started taking Chinese lessons in the midst of this crazy year and discovered my real name doesn’t translate well into Chinese.  So my teacher helped me picked a name ( Little or small (Xiǎo ), Red (Hóng))  I have a small patch of red in my hair, so this name suits me well.  A few other random designs as well and finishing up with my first put together face.  I’m so happy with it, but was sad to see a giant chunk crack off in the kiln.  Was going to fuse it back together but now I kind of like the chunk standing up on its’ own, it makes a funny little face statue!

Here they all are, the past 3 months worth of Murrini Monday….
