Judy Dunn has done some clever things with simple polymer clay shapes. By combining a single shape covered with companion patterns in eye-pleasing palettes, she’s created an exciting new series that she calls Shibori.

Again we see how working in a group (see the earlier post on Dayle Doroshow’s theory about making multiples) forces artists to explore and refine…and ultimately improve their concepts. You can see this theory working as you scroll through Judy’s slideshow.

          Oh, Cynthia! Thank you! Of course today I did not get on the computer till mid afternoon! And thank you Libby, Lunes and Kathi. I am having fun playing with this new line. I am learning about design all over again in the last year. There is new left in simplicity. 🙂
