Life is like a bowl of polymer

Eakes bowl

From this angle you can hardly tell what Julie Eakes is up to with her extruded polymer mosaics. If you tip the bowl a delightful secret is revealed.

Read about how cane ends from one face project propelled Julie in a more sculptural direction. Of course she encountered problems she hadn’t planned on and found there was no turning back once she started.

This one-of-a-kind bowl is 9″ in diameter by 3.25″ deep. She plans to go bigger next time.

              Julie you are a master! I love my Venus necklace and one of my biggest regrets is missing your class at the Clay Carnival 2 years ago. Next time, I’ll be there and you will be lei’d (pardon my Hawaiian, lol!)

                  Our Julie has done it again. How clever is that?
                  Julie – we need to catch up, chat and have a laugh. Wish Penina was hosting another event – I’d be there.
                  Till I see you again
                  Hugs, Carol xxx
