Roosting after 100 days

Pamela Carmen's birds come home to roost after 100 days on PolymerClayDaily

Florida’s Pamela Carmen winds down her 100 Day project with a few more birds. Can you imagine the menagerie she’s accumulated in 100 days?

The neutral palette is a change for Pamela. Tropical colors are more to her liking and she applies slices over most any form she can find.

You’ll find her transforming vessels and found forms on Flickr and Instagram. She changes her style according to what the shape calls for. If you’ve been thinking about covering items, her work will educate you.

Birds on a wire

Repeat for effect

Victoria Mkhitarian repeats her birds for effect on PolymerClayDaily.com

Victoria Mkhitarian (vimhandmade) is smitten with birds and she finds a lovely way to capture her obsession in polymer. She gathers her small tiles into a couple of framed bird mosaics.

The birds are fancifully rendered in mokume gane polymer on textured backgrounds in various shades of yellow.

Do you have a mark or an image that you repeat again and again, sometimes without thinking? What could you make of them if you gathered them into a composition?

A flock of beads

Rebecca Watkins' flock of bird beads on PolymerClayDaily.com

Rebecca Watkins turns bright beads into cheery birds. They’re 2-inches long from beak to tail and she whitewashed the newest batch to give them more flutter.

Rebecca is an experimenter and you can easily spend more time than you intended reading about the methods she’s come up with for embossing and metallics and etching and more.

She shares all the details (lots of videos) of her late night adventures in polymer. Track her down on her blog and Facebook and Etsy.

Polymer flies high

NadTal's steampunk lady wins the prize on PolymerClayDaily.com

San Diego’s Nadia (NadVal) created her own version of Belted Kingfishers for the art competition at the San Diego County Fair. Her polymer kingfisher flies with a steampunk flock.

The real species is one of only a few  whose females have plumage brighter than males. Despite the warlike appearance, this one is female.

And she’s a prize winner. The framed bird took the top prize in the show.

Read more about the bird on Nadia’s site, Flickr and Facebook.
