Flaky, funky, folksy holiday polymer

Much of the country is in a snowy mood and I drifted to the snow-inspired polymer works of two artists.

Kim Owens (folkartfromtheheart) antiques her folk art/primitive characters (the one at right is Frosty Frightcicle) to give them her signature funky folk look. She’s from California and must have to imagine her snowy scenes.

Janell Berryman (pumpkins-seeds) lives on the Oregon coast where I doubt she’s seeing snowmen like those in her newest collection (pictured at left) either.

Janell has been sculpting and selling her pieces since 1997 and she’s part of a group of like-minded “sweet and spooky” sculptors on the spookytimejingles site. The rich polymer and paperclay links on that site provide a perfect diversion when you need a break from your studio.

    This is adorable. I especially love that a christmas tree is being decorated with pumpkins.

      With these cute sculptures one can imagine snow wherever one is. They are so adorably cheerful.

        Wow! I had no idea my Frosty Frightcicle was posted here. I am truly honored, thank you so much. This is a beautiful site with some incredibly talanted artists. I am grateful to be listed among them.

          Way to go Kim! He’s adorable! You did a great job with the cross over of holidays!
          We are fortunate to have Kim as a member of American Holiday Artists. She is friendly as well as multi-talented!
