Snakes form the main theme on Jon Anderson's latest sculpture on PolymerClayDaily.com

Snakes for Monday? But these snakes from Bali’s Jon Stuart Anderson are not your garden variety.

This sculptural shrine crawling with snakes and topped with a glass ball is the most densely ornamented item I’ve ever seen from Jon. He collaborated with Luke Brown and Sudida to get the imagery just right. You’ll find frogs, masks, and many more caned images hidden throughout the highly decorated piece.

Some of his in-progress shots on Facebook show how the insides and hidden parts of his works are created with the same care and attention as the main elements. Here are a top view, a closeup of patterns, an early photo without wildlife.

If you haven’t visited Jon’s site for a while, you’ll be surprised by all the new products. Jon recently had joint surgery and I thought he’d be sidelined for a while but his creativity is more apparent and he’s more prolific than ever!

Barb Alexander’s spring 2019 tour of Bali is full so she’s added a second one if Bali’s wonders (including polymer) have been on your bucket list.

    What immediately jumped out at me when I first saw this is the abstract image of a woman bending forward to kiss a snake.
