The Pawpaw Charm Story
In the springtime, on a beautiful sunny day, I visited my pawpaw grove. I talked to the trees and told them my idea for this art project. After I was sure we were all excited about the idea, I carefully selected several of the tiniest unripe fruits to harvest for art purposes. I thanked the trees for their many gifts. I did not know if there would be seeds inside yet, but I hoped. Imagine my delight when I carefully sliced the little fruits and found these beautiful and unique seed arrangements inside! I delicately excavated the little seeds and cast molds from the sliced fruits. Once I had the molds, I was able to create a variety of ceramic pawpaw fruit slice charms using organic clay and non-toxic glazes. The fruit body is painted in cream colored glaze and the edges are painted in light green similar to real pawpaw fruit. The imprints where the seeds had been are painted in the pop color of your choice.
