November Monthly Challenge

The theme for this month's PCAGOE Challenge is "Seasonal". We were asked to create entries depicting either the Fall or Winter seasons, or in the case of our members residing outside the U.S., the climate season they are currently experiencing in their part of the world. In the alternative, the members could choose to create an entry celebrating one of the holidays observed during the Fall and Winter months.
I chose to do an Autumn themed project. I love the golds and coppers of the Fall. The colors are all so warm and rich. My daughter-in-law also loves pumpkins and fall, so I created these pumpkins for a birthday gift for her. They are made by first sculpting a pumpkin shape over a glass Christmas ball. Next I made a mokume gane sheet with gold, copper and pearl premo metallic clays that I stamped with a leaf design. I then covered the pumpkin with the sheet.
The voting started November 1st and goes through midnight Eastern of the 7th. Go to our Challenge Voting Page to cast your vote. Just for voting you are eligible to receive a great prize created by one of our members.
