In 2018 we said goodbye to Tory Hughes, one of the polymer community’s true pioneers. This piece entitled The Path from Nothing to Something hints at the ethereal, celestial themes that appeared in Tory’s works.
To close out the year, enjoy one more walk through her Santa Fe studio and savor the richness of her work. We will miss her.
This 2.25″ x 3.25″ tiger lily pendant by Connecticut’s Lynne Ann Schwarzenberg picks up on 2019’s Living Coral, the color of the year according to Pantone. Lynne Ann shows it on Instagram and lists it on Etsy.
She’s expert at leaf and floral canes and she’s on track for the new year.
Ready to think about what 2019 has in store for us? Come on over to StudioMojo. This weekend we’ll be looking at the challenges and trends ahead. If your mojo needs a push to move up a notch, this is the place.
Olga calls herself a Nuyorican (Puerto Rican New Yorker) who grew up in the heart of Spanish Harlem in New York City.
Influenced by the music and cultures around her, she infuses her polymer works with those same rhythms and colors. Here she is on Facebook.
This week on Saturday’s StudioMojo we’ll be figuring out how to leave a few breadcrumbs around the studio so that when the holiday hubbub settles down, you will enthusiastically follow them back to your art.
The UK’s Bridget Derc has two 27 1/2″ square patio tables to cover with polymer tiles. She calculated how much clay she’d need and got busy.
Bridget shares many of her work in progress shots on Flickr. No two of the 18 tiles (each about 9″ square) are alike. Her meticulous arranging of the kaleidoscopic pieces is amazing.
She makes assembling hundreds of pieces look so effortless that we think, “Yeah, I could totally do that.” What is it about watching someone else work so diligently that allows us to forget the herculean effort involved?
Lots of clay, lots of math, lots of patience. Then lots of satisfaction having tea on your beautiful new tables.
