Salads and polymer

Jane Cox turns simple wooden kitchen utensils into special gifts on PolymerClayDaily.com

The UK’s Jane Cox (JaneLovesCreativity) turns simple wooden kitchen utensils into special gifts.

She winds comfy colors of extruded polymer strings around the handles, smooths the clay and polishes it to a shine after curing.

Imagine a friend smiling as she stirs dinner or serves salad with the spoon that reminds her of you.

There’s plenty of time to create these before the holidays, right?

We’ll be peeking into Tory Hughes Santa Fe atelier this week on StudioMojo. See how she surrounds herself with samples of luscious colors before she begins. Join us!

 

Shish kebabs are hot

Ashley Hicks glamorous shish kebabs sell out on PolymerClayDaily.com

These Table Totems from the UK designer Ashley Hicks look as refreshed and silly as I feel. One fan calls them glamorous shish kebabs. His variety of polymer shapes are stacked on rods and perched on painted wooden bases.

Here’s an in-process shot. He seems to relish the love/hate responses from his commenters.

Ashley makes much larger, resin sculptures with the same vibe. Carried by trendy London decorating stores, his works are often sold out. Follow him on Instagram and his site.

I missed you PCD readers in October but our separation was a good thing and I’m happy to be back home.
