Polymer vessels are moving to the wild side thanks to artists like Massachusetts’ Kathryn Corbin.


This one has holes and textures and what looks like three or four layers with a rough exterior. The chopped edged interior is colored with pastels and who-knows-what and given a mysterious touch with some cryptic drawing.

There are more vessels on Facebook and an earlier post on PCDaily to give you more samples of Kathryn’s work.

How many of us have drawers of pens, powders and inks that we’re saving for just the right project? Maybe this is the week to pull them out and venture beyond our comfort zones.

    Kathryn’s artistic journey is one of exploring, experimenting, evaluating, percolating, exploring some more, evaluating those creations, always with the spirit of a curious artistic adventurer. It is such a delight watching her journey. She is now producing pieces that positively make me gasp. Then giggle. I love when that happens.

          Okay, this is a slap-my-forehead-why-didn’t-I-Think_of_That moment.
          Love this post and adore her work. Thanks.
