Kathleen Dustin has added some spectacular new work to her web site. While there are a number of additions to the Village Women purses for which she is best-known, the most exciting work shows a departure from the smooth hand-drawn layered figures.

Featuring boar's bristles and carved polymer, some of Kathleen's new pieces have a stiffer and more tactile quality. The polymer stones that she's created for years are now incised and stacked in new and appealing ways in her carved stone sampler bracelet.

The "tornado pins" pictured here blend the layered, luminous look with new textures and shapes. It's inspiring to see one of polymer's early pioneers continue to produce such new and exciting work.
