Herson’s polymer recipe

Looking for a good time in the studio and exciting polymer clay work?

Listen to Marcia Herson’s recipe, “I surround myself with clay, images, texturing tools, gold and silver, pieces of glass, a cup of tea and then I play. My work is about integration and balance. There must be both movement and stillness, vibrance and subtlety too.”

Marcia’s been working her formula for a number of years and you can see results on her other sites here and here.

Wynn’s polymer spring fancies

Heather Wynn stamps heart-melting quotes into polymer clay. Then she textures, paints and buffs them into romantic pendants and charms. She’s aptly named herself “swoondimples” on her blog and Etsy gallery.

She’s sees it as her duty as an artist “to ignite the heart with an abundance of love, compassion, and hope.”

If spring has turned your fancy to thoughts of love, Heather’s work will show you how to wear your heart on your sleeve or around your neck in style.

Monday morning zen

We begin the week with Psychotic Reaction! This young San Diego artist describes her polymer clay rings on Etsy as “fun and chunky” but she doesn’t give us much more info about herself. The simple geometry, calm colors (that blend with PCD’s colors nicely), and neat assembly of these pieces feel more zen than psychosis.

Here’s her MySpace page where she shows more of her work, including glib commissioned portraits.

Cardoza’s mysterious polymer

Friday’s artist is a bit of a mystery. These segmented polymer clay bracelets by Toni Cardoza are elegant with great cane work. But Toni doesn’t google well.


work is for sale on the Society of Arts and Crafts site and I know that she teaches at the Bead and Wire Shop in Seekonk, Massachusetts. Other than that, I’m clueless. Can anyone fill me in? Thanks to Susan Lomuto for the link.

Another mystery solved

Amy Wasserman ordered replacement scraper blades for her Atlas pasta machine through the importer for $5. She reports that the new ones are made of plastic and seem to work fine. Contact Dawn at [email protected] if you’re looking for parts.

Phillips’ faux flora and fauna

Lori “Tab” Phillips majored in ceramics and she brings a potter’s sensibility to her polymer clay faux ceramic beads and pods. Her palette is bright…perfect for spring…as in this chic and charming magic bean necklace.

If you take a look at her photo site, you’ll see how her eye gravitates to the same palette in nature.

Lori uses a strip of unbaked polymer as a bead board when she’s assembling a necklace. Pretty clever, eh?

This Kentucky artist is new to PCDaily (thanks to Darleen Bellan). You’ll want to keep tabs on her blog, her Flickr and her Etsy sites.
