Inclusions add a cosmic touch

Marina Rios mixes lots of ingredients into her cosmic rocks on PolymerClayDaily.com

Chicago’s Marina Rios (FancifulDevices) creates rustic, Victorian, tribal style mixed media assemblages. Her antique and vintage materials are heavily altered and combined with artisan components to create evocative objects.

Marina adds sand, ground and dyed oyster shell, embossing powders, pre-baked and chopped polymer and more as inclusions in the beads that stack up into this Regolith totem.

After firing, she begins painting –  back-painting, resist, dry brushing, glazing and more to give this 3.4″ stack of beads its history and mystery.

If you like it when cosmic collides with tribal in polymer, check her out on Instagram and Etsy.
