Stokes on PCDaily.com

On a hot day, the graceful, spare designs from Ohio’s Grace Stokes are like a cool breeze.

Grace says that her work with polymer was born out of frustration. "I did not want to be limited by the color or pattern or size of a stone," she says. " Polymer allows me the versaility to create elements and qualities exactly to the specifications that I want for my designs."

Time for a mint julip!

    Grace's work has really evolved–she caught my attention a few years back with her striking leaf designs in gold and coppers–I love to see where she's taken the medium  in recent years.

      After seeing this beautiful piece a couple of days ago I have to comment. As beautiful as it looks in this picture, it's even more breathtaking in person! I love Grace's new direction, and that she's taking advantage of her painting background. I need to own her work!!!

          It's so inspiring to see polymer reach this caliber and be integrated so beautifully into such refined metal work. Thank you, PCD, for featuring this!

              The effect in the leaves is really brilliant.
