The Clay that Wanted to be what I didn't want it to be, but it became what it wanted to be

I needed to use up some clay.
I had accepted a challenge to create a textured object such as a bowl.
So I gathered up the clay.
I put them in a ball and mushed and twisted and turned and flattened.
I was determined to make a bowl.
Well, my first attempts just didn't work.
I decided I'd make a coiled bowl.
That's when the clay took over.
I had no choice.
This is what happened.

Sticks of clay that became earrings.

Braids became a bracelet.

Flattened clay became feathers for a pendant in my necklace.
I had no choice.
The clay rules!!!

I have learned this lesson the hard way, Mallory. The clay is in charge. Once in a while I am fooled into thinking I have some say in the matter.
