Pier’s objet d’art

Alexis Pier (of Pier and Penina) has also shifted her interest to making polymer clay “objet d’art”.

The small sculptures below and the 4″x10″ tile at the left show her first steps toward larger wall pieces and more sizeable sculptures.

Air-filled closed shapes build on a technique introduced by Pier Voulkos in 1997 with refinements and new style added more recently by Jeff Dever and others.

Note: I’ll try to pry Carol Simmons’ cane reducing secrets out of her before I leave at the end of the week.
