Roaming the workroom

Gail Bor creates arty paper-bead style polymer beads  around dowels on

Finding out what’s catching on, what’s trending is one good reason to attend polymer events in your area. Chunky wrapped beads formed in the paper bead style and baked around varying sizes of wooden dowels popped up at Clayathon. This particularly striking one is from Gail Bor. Its free and easy style and colors look great with any wardrobe.

Like lots of polymer artists, Gail makes pieces to wear and doesn’t show much of her work online.

Late at night, when everyone clears out of the workroom, I roam with my camera to capture works in progress. The cluttered workspaces offer great insight into each artist’s methods and thought process. In this week’s StudioMojo you can wander the conference with us and pick up new tools and ideas. Sign up now to join us for the inside scoop this Saturday.

      I too saw this at Clayathon, and thought it was fabulous, and bold, and still lightweight. Yay! Wonderfully done, Gail Bor, kudos.
