This is my version of Maureen Carlson's 'Green Man'. I just bought her book, "Fairies gnomes & trolls" while I was at the polymer clay retreat in Canberra (thanks to Linda & Lex for making it possible to get it sooner rather than later).
I've got a long way to go and a lot of practising to be done. I think it's The Green Man's prehistoric ancestor and some evolution needs to happen to improve his looks. Anyway I'm pleased with me first effort. Dad said he looks like a cross between a cartoon American Indian and Max Klinger (MASH).
The other bits in the picture are for holding flowers and herbs from the garden.

Retreat 2007

We had a class on how to make a frog and he looked very much like a gherkin with legs. I had to put a rock, of sorts, under his head because he kept wanting to lay down (the clay got so gooey in the warm room). He is in the process of catching a bug.
