Be careful what you watch

Television influences Lindsay Locatelli's necklaces on PolymerClayDaily

Mother of Dragons? Night King?

Lindsay Locatelli admits that she may have had Game of Thrones in the back of her mind as she worked on these polymer pieces for her August/September Gallery 360 show in Minneapolis.

“Currently, I am interested in creating pieces that juxtapose polished, traditional fashion jewelry ideas with rough, asymmetrical, and dynamic wearable art,” she says. See it on Instagram and Facebook.

Does what you’re watching affect what’s on your workspace?

Can’t mute Meisha

Meisha Barbee goes for granite on PolymerClayDaily.com

Meisha Barbee takes her bright colors down a notch for this recent series. She admits that she’s found a new love in Premo Gray Granite with its speckles buried in a rich translucent polymer.

She’s fond of thinning sheets of granite and overlaying them on other colors for depth. You’ll note resonances of Jana Roberts Benzon in the dimensional shapes and find other influences in the graphic stamps and stripes.

Still, the composition is unmistakable Meisha. If you want to see more, come on over to StudioMojo this weekend for video of some of her tricks and shortcuts.

Succulent polymer

Kim Korringa creates a succulent world on PolymerClayDaily.com

This bowl of succulents from California’s Kim Korringa was a marvel to behold. Everything…the 6″ rock bowl, the succulents, the soil, even the string-of-pearls…was made of polymer.

You can tell from Kim’s attention to detail that she’s quite a gardener.

Meanwhile, Kim was also working on a line of caned Christmas jewelry for the Uno Alla Volta catalog adding minuscule ornaments on yards of caned trees.

Easter Island polymer

Maureen Carlson's small Easter Island totems on PolymerClayDaily.com

Of all my eclipse week memorabilia, these polymer totems from Minnesota’s Maureen Carlson (weefolk) make me smile the most. Maureen is known for finding fantasy characters everywhere.

Her old man monuments are made of polymer rocks stacked in an Easter Island way. Though they’re only 2″ tall, they look massive. The faux pebbles form another face on the back side.

Here they are laid out on the swap table, ready to be slipped onto a garden stake. If you like rock cairns these may give you ideas for enlivening your garden. There’s more on Facebook.

Two weeks of travel have provided a bonus of exciting new works that we’ll examine on PCD this week.

The eclipse continues

Randy Townsend/Karen Mitchell eclipse brooch on polymerclaydaily.com

sent PCD this photo of a solar eclipse pin made by her husband, Randy Townsend, at a post-Synergy4 micro mosaic class on Friday. He finished it quickly after their return to California so he could wear it for the eclipse.

We’re recovering in the Colorado mountains and will upload photos as the network allows. Enjoying all the submissions of your personal eclipse artworks.
