Taking new directions

Dorothy Siemens has veered  in a new direction with her latest polymer sculptures like this 4-inch by 6-inch Tri-pod and her Scorpion which are much looser and less structured than previous works. Her precise knitting and beadwork make these sculptures a surprise. Polymer invites her to play.

Posting from my iPad is a challenge so I’ll just have you go explore Dorothy’s  lovely work for yourself. You’ll see what I mean.

          Thank you, Cynthia, for posting my layered pod sculpture! I am thrilled! Your comment about using polymer to just play is completely accurate.

            I just perused Dorothy’s Flickr site and am just in love with all her work! I rarely comment on these sites but I wanted to let Dorothy know how much I enjoyed looking at pictures of all her polymer, knitted, and bead crocheted pieces. Thank you!
