Tinapple upstairs/downstairs polymer

When I told a friend that I wasn’t ready to share my studio work this week, she suggested I show my bedroom instead. I ran upstairs and snapped a few pictures of the polymer clay in my bedroom. No tidying, no photoshopping (ok, I omitted the chair that catches laundry).

I wake every morning to a collection of vibrant colors and patterns created by wonderful friends. Their stories inspire me and their friendships keep me going. Enjoy this peek at some of my inspirations.

    OMG, Cynthia, can I live at your house?! Not only do you have a terrific collection (terrifically displayed), but your whole house looks like it’s calling you to make more canes – Look at all those circles!

    Now, get back to work so we can see some more of your own stuff.

              Cynthia,
              I remember seeing all those polymer pieces when I visited you back in November but I didn’t have time to look closely. Thanks for posting the great pictures showing the detail.

                Lindley, Lindley, Sarah, Elise, Pier, Lindley… It is nice to see such a stellar collection!

                I too surround myself with concentric circles- from my Fiestaware dishes to the fabric I choose to use in my booth. Everything in my world is colorful circles. I am told that circles signify family. Works for me!

                  I’m SOOOOO jealous!

                  (And I covet your gorgeous walnut dresser. Just beautiful!)

                      WOW! I mean WOW with a capital “W”! I have already ordered the wooden stick pins; ingenious! Thank you. Your studio has such a warm, inviting, peaceful feeling to it. What a great space to create. Thank you so much for sharing.

                        It must be a treat waking up to this wonderful collection every day. Love the interior and the African pices too.

                          How do you decide what to wear? So many choices – so little time 🙂

                            Wow. You can tell an artist lives here. Great display. My hubby is in the process of building me a jewelry rack in our bedroom where a window used to be that we took out. You’ve given me some great ideas!!!

                              Your home is absolutely beautiful! What a great way to display your clay artwork! Everything is so neat and perfect…you would not want to see my work room!
                              You are an excellent inspiration.
                              Thank you so much for sharing.

                                thanks for sharing where you create! it looks great! my studio looks like the result of a combined thrift store craft store explosion–and not in a good way.

                                  I love these rooms with their circle motifs, colors and fabulous jewelry. It is fun to look at the PC pieces and guess the artist. This post is one of my favorites
