Moving the furniture

Viewers at the Carthage College exhibit said that Laura Tabakman’s installation made them feel good. They described it as a meadow or a wildflower garden. The thin wires on which the flowers were mounted swayed gently as people walked by. The effect was calming, delicate, meditative and cheery.

One flower bed was tucked against the walls near the gallery entrance. A second free-standing patch of flowers created a path that guided visitors into and through the meadow.

How did she do it? Her in-process photos gathered here show how Laura moved all the furniture out of her living room to try the piece out in her Pittsburgh home. She’s used to moving the furniture. Take a look at some of her previous works.

The UK’s Lizzie Campbell (Clay Disarray) has thrown polymer right into the middle of popular culture with her Breaking Bad Polymer Poster.

“Much of my personal work is inspired by my love of films – particularly horror and dark genre, as well as slightly smaller independent films – and all of the ‘polymer posters’ I’ve worked on are for films that have creatively inspired me in some way,” she admits.

She only began with polymer a year ago and her polymer popstars, politicians and posters are quite the rage. What fun to flip through them on her site, store and in recent press. Even her business name makes you smile.

Carol Blackburn came to polymer through knitting and you can see how she has thought through her work. Her brain stacks and repeats and combines patterns and shapes that appear both engineered and organic.

For several years her strips of color have marched next to each other in increasingly interesting formations, most recently in this Striped Shell Necklace.

In her new Waves series the components now dance and flow more smoothly.

You can witness how she has evolved and moved through the process by looking at her site, at Pinterest, at Flickr and Facebook.
