Tropical Friday

Terlizzi on PCDaily

Melissa Terlizzi’s tropical delights end our week with a hit of color and a touch of whimsey. The tropical business card holder (left) was commissioned. The structure wraps around the cards with a bouquet of flowers and frogs added for a happy effect.

The Feathers and Foliage piece was created for a 3D show at her gallery. Enjoy progress pictures of the scarlet macaws on Flickr and follow her antics in polymer on Facebook.

Have a colorful weekend.

Italian inspiration

Rotta on PCDaily

My heart did a little spring flip-flop when I spotted the work of Italy’s Monica Rotta on Facebook. These pieces come from her Tribute to Claire (Maunsell) series. The further I clicked through her photos, the more delighted I was. Transfers, textures, appliques with startling colors and a look all her own.

“In my case the geographical context in which I live (the hills of Brianza) flavors especially my sensitivity to respect and to wonder at the marvels of nature,” she says in an interview. She satisfies her need for organic materials by mixing leaves, black rice, stones, wood, dried fruits, shells, paper and other objects with polymer.

Monica worked for 6 or 7 years with no formal instruction until she took her first classes in 2013. Here she is on the Ganoksin website and on Flickr. On Pinterest you’ll see work-in-progress shots from an exhibition of works in collaboration with the painter¬†Annare Gioielli. Now Monica teaches and she has a couple spots left in her Trees of Life class this Sunday.

Almost edible polymer

Haunani on PCDaily

This is one of Lindly Haunani’s sample bracelets for a July master class which is aptly named Incredible Almost Edible Color.¬†

The curved tube smoothly fits the back of the wrist with the bouquet of folded petals and leaves stretching across the front. Designed like a wrist corsage, I’m betting that this is comfortable to wear. (But not edible.)

Registration for the 6-day Master Class Camp intensive sessions opens today. The July 8-13 classes in Laurel, Maryland, feature some of polymer’s most accomplished artists. Follow Lindly on Facebook as well.

Eclectic online tonight

Craftcast snatched Staci Louise Smith for an online class as soon as she saw Staci’s faux fossils and painted talisman necklaces. Tonight online Staci will paint and crackle, wire wrap and string an ecelectic mix of fashionable fun while she describes each step.

Oh, this will be fun. Register here to watch live and play the recording again when you need a refresher.
