So crafting a lemon beaded jug cover from polymer clay isn't first on your to-do list. Chances are, though, that at least one of accomplished English sculptor Heaser's 19 projects (or variations thereof) will strike someone's fancy. None of these household items, whether tassel tiebacks or an Arabian palace clock, are labeled by level of difficulty. Nor are there extensive how-tos on the basic techniques. Instead, all the details needed to successfully complete and show off any one project are featured within pattern instructions, step by colorful step. Close-up color photographs substitute well for tons of words; even rank novices can conquer the easier projects, like a polymer pencil or Roman mosaic trivet. Best used as a follow-up to more elementary texts. Barbara JacobsCopyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved
