Polymer brainiac Qixuan Lim (QimmyShimmy) is not your average polymer artist. She calls herself an accidental sculptor. Her subject matter may make you squirm. Here she is on Instagram.
She’s an art school grad and designer-by-day from Singapore, currently based in the Netherlands.
I don’t understand but I can’t stay away. I pore over her works to figure out how the brain of this 25-year-old talent works. I happily add her to PCD’s mixed bag of artists.
We’ll be look at more oddities on StudioMojo tomorrow. Plus I’m moving studios so I’m knee-deep in organizing and learning how other artists pare down their supplies to make room for new ideas. Join us!
Jen Parrish-Hill (Parrish Relics) posted another entry to her Relics Get Around board on Pinterest. This time one of her Stained Glass Amulets made an appearance on season one/episode 5 of the television series Criminal Minds (find it on Netflix).
Jen’s friends and customers keep sharp eyes on television wardrobes for her distinctive amulets and relics.
“I enjoy creating designs that tell visual stories and start conversations, that are more than simple adornment. I like to think of them as charms and talismans that also bring a bit of magic and beauty to a wardrobe.” Over the years Jen has created a number of pieces for the entertainment industry that she catalogs on her Pinterest board and shows on Instagram. Nice way to advertise, eh?
Julia Tarasenkova has studied and drawn yarrow, cornflower, wild onion and other vegetation in her Russian landscape. She reproduces them in polymer and turns them into jewelry as with this Sage necklace.
You may have thought you’d seen enough polymer bowls. Ireland’s Silvana Bates’ soap dishes pulls us out of bowl overload.
For her jewelry designs, Silvana creates batches of canes in her favorite palettes that lean toward faded colors and homey patterns.
By joining the tail ends of canes and shaping random bits into bowls, she accentuates their charm in a way that hints of soft old quilts in cozy cottages. She made these to hold her daughter’s collection of soaps.
