Fantasy polymer

Priser on PCDaily

We’ve had our spook on all week and Jane Priser’s alien takes us to the weekend in style.

Her latest cosmic creature is 15″ tall with colorful skin made of twisted polymer and painted glass eyes.

This Colorado nighttime artist calls her work visionary and fantasy. ” I have found that creating in the night hours allows me to harvest dream time,” she says. Lots of cats creep into the dreams of this former potter.

Here she is on Etsy and Flickr. Have a fantastic weekend.

Polymer poultry

McDill on PCDaily

You may see a teapot where Layl McDill sees a fanciful chicken. It flew out of her studio as soon as it was finished.

Layl layers slices from her brightly patterned canes onto vases, pitchers, teapots and more. She piles on the color (see the in-process shot below), hoping to catch the viewer’s eye and inspire wonder.

In this issue of The Polymer Arts, Layl is one of four featured artists who approach polymer with whimsey and humor.

Layl adds to her site regularly and puts her most recent work on her Facebook page.

 

Monster veggies

Atkinson on PCDaily

Put a couple of eyes on your fruits and veggies and suddenly they’re ready for Halloween. You can see how it works for Hawaii’s Kiva Atkinson and her miniature blood oranges.

“I enjoy making unusual things, from strange Tudor food, to ethnic cuisines, to cheeky mice doing naughty things. My imagination gets to run wild all the time!” she says.

This tray of miniatures ready for baking shows you how Kiva ran wild with her vegetables. There’s more on her blog and on Flickr.

Oops, that’s 7:30 EST…be there!

Undead polymer

Terlizzi on PCDaily
Baldwin on PCDaily

Don’t look now but monsters are beginning to creep into the polymer pages online.

Melissa Terlizzi’s trio of Zombie Brooches: Accessories for the Wicked and the Undead (above) are very weird and wearable.

Melissa’s from Virginia and you’ll find her on Facebook.

Denise Baldwin (left) cooked up a batch of exotic creatures on Flickr. She’s identified herself as ODDimagination so this line of creepies shouldn’t be a surprise. She’s on Etsy. Denise is from Virginia too! Coincidence?
