Follow the dots

Perova on PCDaily

UK’s Olga Petrova shows off her latest polymer-covered 4″ x 8″ vessel.

Extruded designs? Probably. Textured? That too. Accented with a wash of black? Yes. Begs to be touched? Indeed!

The vase looks like a 3D zentangle with islands of designs floating in rivers of dots. Wouldn’t this look stunning as a shelf accent? See more on Instagram, Facebook and Flickr.

Pull this

Wiggins on PCDaily

Fan pulls! Now wouldn’t that be a smart idea on a hot day like this?

Angie Wiggins makes these in her rustic studio in the woods of Virginia – a good place to work when it’s hot. Picture her chickens clucking in the background.

Grab yourself a beverage and wander through Angie’s world on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.

Angie’s known for her handmade paper bowls embroidered with beads and polymer do-dads though she veers into switchplates, spoons and other dashes of color that customers enjoy using around the house.

Modern artifacts

Udell on PCDaily

Luann Udell moved from Vermont to California, switched her workspace from a barn to a small studio and added woodworking and box-making skills to her mix of media.

Now her polymer artifacts from lost cultures and imagined prehistories are sometimes housed in refinished antique boxes as in this Shrine: Red Deer Clan.

Her story’s a good one and you can read it and see an overview of her work on ArtsyShark.com.

Luann adds that she’s having an Open Studio in Santa Rosa this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, August 6 & 7, from 10-5.

Performance, polymer mashup

Vinsantos on PCDaily

New Orleans artist, Vinsantos puts his hoarder tendencies to good use in his Kreeture series of assemblage dolls.

“I see the art that I create as a mash-up of sculpture, assemblage, fashion design, makeup, and hair artistry.” “I also see it as the reinvention and preservation of beauty. The characters found in Kreeture stem from my years on the underground performance art circuit. I’ve spent many years in the public spotlight either as a live musician, a Drag artist, and more often as a combination of both,” he explains.

Vinsantos shadow box characters can be seen at Tresor Gallery and you can follow him on Facebook.
