Carnival of chillies: inspired by the time me and brother spent our time daring each other to sample the strongest chilli dip we could find...and spent the next half an hour, mouths burning, making strangled noises.
i kept the shape of the beads suggestive of chillies rather than realistic replicas and matched the colour palette to the packaging (or as close as i can recall) of the chilli dip.
i made the shape by wraping rods of scrap clay with cane slices then pinching to shape. each bead was then baked , sanded and buffed Smiley
