She joins a select group of polymer artists in this premier crafts show. From over 1000 applicants,120 are chosen to participate. We’ve come a long way from hippie beads to welcomed participants in fine crafts. See more of Emily’s works on Flickr.
At StudioMojo, the weekend behind-the-scenes newsletter, we marvel at where artists are showing and where we may end up next. If your art needs a shot of inspiration and a push toward new possibilities, join us!
Paris’ Cécile Bos (11prunes) worked as a biology researcher before she happened on polymer. Her approach to caning is small, as you might expect, and resembles textile design. You can catch the drift of her thinking from this photo collage on her website.
Blocks of small designs on a matching background are created and then combined into a repeating design.
The finished patterns are quite delicate and small, just the right size for her delicate pendants and long thin tubes. She’s on Instagram and Facebook.
Mid-week is the right time to think about changing directions. Cecile has opted for smaller and more delicate works.
