Floating polymer

Haskova on PCDaily

Simple layered polymer flower cutouts float on ovals of rippling colors in the same pallete. You may find yourself pondering how Eva Haskova created the graceful spirals on top of the graduated colors.

You can learn her methods if you can get to Eva’s class in Prague in September. The pendants are samples for the class project. Maybe she’ll start writing up her methods for those of us who are far from the Czech Republic.

See more of Eva’s creations on Flickr, Facebook, and in this quick video of her designs.

Mountain collaboration

Kruglak-Roche on PCDaily

Thank you for your patience as I unhooked myself from the blogisphere last week. This wall art collaborative collage by Ann Kruglak and Nan Roche reflects the calming colors and dramatic textures that surrounded us in the mountains.

The piece combines branches and a rock from nature. The deeply weathered wood and other elements were molded and replicated in polymer.

The duo’s love of nature speaks strongly. Ann works tirelessly, selling her work to benefit the rainforests with 100% of her proceeds going to a land conservancy charity.

Nan, widely heralded as a seminal figure in the polymer community and author of The New Clay (first published in 1991), is now dipping her toe into the social media pool and heading toward her studio after a long hiatus. You’ll find her on Facebook and Pinterest for now.

If you’d like to learn more about Nan, join StudioMojo, the weekend newsletter, where she chats candidly in a video interview in Saturday’s edition.

Whirling polymer

Nemravova on PCDaily

Petra Nemravova’s brooch is a whirl of words surrounded by spinning hologram beads. The motion and energy of this piece resonate with me as I pack and prepare for a summer break. Check in on Petra on Facebook and her site.

Summer break

Can’t say how much I’ll post during my weeklong break. We’ll leave it to chance, mood and weather. If you miss your daily dose, browse the PCD archives in the column at the right (10 years worth this month) and pop over to Instagram for pictures. Have a great weekend.
