Two Heads Are Better

Karen Woods has some new works on her site. My favorites are her collaborative works with beadweaving artists. Some of the best in polymer team up with others to produce doubly interesting work.

If you’re looking for something to enliven your creations, consider enlisting artist friends in other media.

Diving In

I’ve finished monkeying around. These finger puppets made from polymer were a vacation shopping find and I promptly forgot the artist’s name. She’s a Whidbey Island artist with some wonderful characters in her head. Her work is at the Bayview Art Center on Whidbey (sorry, no web links).

I pondered what to do with these pages, fretted over where I’d find new things, and considered where the art of polymer is headed. A week of pondering while looking at the water and visiting with friends is theraputic and I’m ready to dive back in.

More Clever Transfers

These reversible poetry rings from Julia Sober illustrate another interesting use of transfers on polymer. Julia also met the challenge of designing the metal parts to hold the polymer securely.

Julia has new polymer pieces on her web site that you won’t want to miss.

Updated Traditional


Still prowling the ACC site, I came across Karin Noyes. It's her thoughtful color palette and the attention to cane detail that makes these traditional bowls so stunning.

There's not much other web info on Karin…her web site's under construction. Can you viewers fill me in? Or did I not Google her properly?

Thanks to Corinne Appleton for finding Karin's site! 

Ephemera

Prowling through ACC site, I came upon this dynamite transfer work by North Carolina’s Lauren Van Hemert, her "Ephemera Collection".

Lauren’s work feels completely different from most transfers I’ve seen. Perhaps it’s her heartfelt connection to the luggage labels and stamps plus her family’s immigration story that makes the work so powerful.
