Pam Schmidt was inspired by Dottie McMillan's "Vessels With Attitude" in our April 2002 edition. In her own words:

Here is "The Garden Bride". I used various canes such as: several types of leaf canes, jelly roll cane, face cane,and free-form cane using the left over clay from the other canes.

After her time in the oven, I used one coat of Future and re baked a second time to set the finish. After she cooled, the neck of her stopper was wrapped with waxed cotton string to make a snug but less abrasive fit. I find this a wonderful way to recycle all those medicine bottles that are hard to throw away.

The pendant is made with the inlaid mokume gane technique shown in a previous issue. The beads on the tigertail are mainly purple freshwater baroque beads, and carnelian.
