Cavender emerges with moss

Cavender's moss-covered sticks and pods

Kim Cavender has emerged from hibernation covered in moss! After several months of quiet, she’s added some new work that includes faux moss clinging to her polymer sticks and stones.

Cavender's polymer rocks 2010

My polymer pebble mentor, Kim has expanded her forest finds to include nuts, vines and pods that she’ll be teaching at the Ohio retreat this weekend. (Let’s hope the snow stops.)

Kim’s rocks are beauties. Take a look at her new ones.

      I can’t believe how real that moss looks. This piece is amazing. I love the mosaic piece to.

        I am such a big fan of her organic work and realistic faux rocks. This mossy new creation is gorgeous.

          I think this is Kim’s finest work to date…her rocks and pebbles have always been amazing, but these ones..well, she’s outdone herself! And, the sticks, moss and pods make me want to go grubbing around in the forest and get some dirt under my fingernails…boy, is it ever time for Spring! Way to go, Kim..

            Beautiful! Almost makes you think that if you shake it something will fall off or come climbing out! I’m looking for a pillbug!

                Wow! not only the moss, but the sticks and seed pods! Those sticks look like the bark is ready to peel right off, and the seed pods are so realistic–they look as if seeds would fall out if you tipped them over. What outstanding work!

                  Fantastic necklace! (admittedly jealous of her skills with moss 🙂 I also really enjoy that its asymmetric.

                    WOW!! The moss is incredible, but I can’t get over the “twigs” or “sticks” – they look exactly like the real thing!!

                      Those are simply amazing. I could look at them all day, and still see things I hadn’t noticed in them before.

                        Beautiful artistry. I always look forward to Kim’s creations. They definitely get and keep your attention.
