Stroppel on PCDaily

Florida’s Alice Stroppel has a high energy style that keeps evolving. She’s moved into her own gallery and set up classes. She upcycles furniture and adds polymer that turns flea market finds into fantasy.

Here’s she’s shifted into a minimalist groove, maybe in reaction to all the hubbub and excitement around her.

For her charms she slices thick slabs of square canes, embedding buna loops and dangling dabs of pattern. The palette is distinctively hers and the treatment is slimmed down, fresh and fun for her new gallery site.

Alice added more to the tea set we looked at last month. Here’s the video.

    Thanks so much Cynthia. I’m having so much fun to begin with and being featured on PCD is the icing on the cake. Such complimentary words, thank you!

      Alice – I absolutely LOVE this design. It’s not easy to come up with something to simple and striking. Truly – less is more, but it takes a lot of ‘undoing’ to get there! Your new studio is a destination that encompasses all your charmand hospitality. Thanks Cynthia for posting!
