Leslie Blackford’s creatures light up a room….really. (You should see the Vegas Rabbit at the left light up. The pig is a light too.)
I intended to keep this bunny under wraps until Easter but I just couldn’t bear to withhold it. Her flying pigs, cats, birds, and all manner of Kentucky wildlife come alive in the silliest and most delightful ways.
It’s a treat to watch Leslie effortlessly turn a lump of clay into a fox and dress him in a polymer Elvis outfit or lean over her shoulder as she adds wings and a fez to a pig. I have one of these lamps in a bathroom and I smile every time I see it. That’s what polymer art is about.
Her web site is a little difficult to navigate but be patient and you’ll be rewarded.
