Eakes’ resolution, Filip’s hearts

North Carolina’s Julie Eakes can cross one resolution off her list. She launched her blog. Go give her a pat on the back.

Julie has become known for her elaborate polymer clay face canes like the one shown here. There are more samples on her Flickr site. Thanks to Jana Roberts Benzon for tipping us off. (Jana has some new lovelies on her site as well.)

Polymer hearts for the next holiday are already beginning to pop up on websites. My favorites are from Konstanze Filip (Madooli) from Berlin. She works in polymer, paper mache, and air drying clays, painting the surfaces with bright colors and drawing graphic patterns and icons.

Her newest pendants look like fossils or rocks from the lunar surface. The “in progress” pictures detail her unusual way of handling the clay.

    Julia’s work is fantastic. Her face canes are especially interesting – they are so detailed and perfect in every way. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
