Masako Inabe’s translucent goldfish truly floats on one of her polymer clay beads. And her butterfly flutters on another.
Donna Kato sent in these pictures taken at Carnival ’07. “I think that goldfish bead is the most beautiful polymer bead I’ve ever seen. It’s so Japanese,” says Donna. (There are more pictures of it in Donna’s travel album.) Carnival ’08 will take place this October-November.
Portland’s Meredith Dittmar has added Etsy to her list of venues and she’s posted pictures of new works in progress on her Flickr site. She’s scheduled a July show in New York and updated her site. There’s even a 2-minute animation. You’ll want to poke around.
