The secret project... work in progress

This gives you a bit of a clue where we were inspired by...

The honesty seedpods are a bit of an experiment. The one on the right is made with two very thin slabs of clay where I put little seeds in between. The one on the left are two very thin fabric leaves which I soaked in liquid porcelain clay. I also put some seeds in between these.

The starfruit like shape needed to have a hole through them all the way. Not easy because you can't do it when the clay is sculpted 'cause it will deform when trying to add a hole. So I strung a piece of clay on cotton thread and sculpted the pod. The thread fired away and there is a nice hole through the whole pod.

To know the idea behind the secret project, go read the first blogpost here or click on the label 'the secret project' to see all the posts about it.
Can't wait to receive your guesses but think about it carefully 'cause you can only guess once! :)
You can send your guess to and can not change your guess so think about it carefully...
