Bocchi’s wire and polymer

I like the use of wire and liquid polymer clay shown in this piece by Italy’s Laura Bocchi (Verdevescica). We last looked at her bangles here and you can see her year at a glance in the pictures here.

If you’re wondering about the market for your work during this economic downturn, you may be encouraged by yesterday’s article in the NYTimes.

    The NY Times experience confirms my selling experience this fall. My less expensive items are flying out of my booth.

      Reminds me of the dipped wire flower petals I made as a kid, only way cooler! What a fabulous little face… so much personality! I truly love this piece!

        Interesting NY Times article. I’m not sure what type of handmade craft items are selling well, but artists on eBay making polymer clay pendants haven’t sold much in the last 3 months. I stopped selling on eBay in the summer (after a very good 2 year run). However, I have continued to monitor polymer clay sales there on an almost daily basis and find that nothing has been moving and sales are poor at best over the past 3-4 months.
