Drawn to translucent

Kathrin Neumaier taunts us with more of her tantalizing Pardo translucent creations. This time she shows thin color-blended petals gathered and suspended from earwires. Makes you think of projects to try for spring, doesn’t it?

This hummingbird seems to be attracted to the flowers! It’s a big cane (2 1/2″ tall and 6″ wide) from Jennifer Patterson. She’ll fill in the voids with translucent to reduce the cane.

Here’s her Quilted in Clay fan page with pictures of her booth and other great canes.

Survey #3

This survey asks a few brief questions about monetizing your work. Whether you hope to cover your costs or support a lavish lifestyle, we’d like to hear from you. This is the third of four surveys Judy Belcher and I made for our Synergy3 presentation in the spring. We’re loving all your responses!

Anke Humpert is surveying European polymer artists to bring the Synergy crowd an accurate picture of how polymer is faring there. Read about her data-gathering and take the survey here.

            I absolutely love her work, but it was my understanding that she creates these beautiful pieces with Fimo gel. Perhaps I am mistaken.

            • reply Barbara Poland-Waters ,

              I’m sorry, I was mistaken, she used Fimo gel for a different type of bead, faux beach glass.

                Actually, Barbara, it you look at her new photos up on Flickr, you’ll see she’s begun to label which is Pardo & which is Fimo & a for few of them, they are pretty much the same style & one can barely see a difference! I am mezmorized:)

                I want to be a mouse under her table for a while. I am constantly blown away by her work.

                  I have completed Survey #3. I live in New Zealand but there was not the option to pick this as my location, so I selected Australia as it was the nearest place.
