Warbling character

Terlizzi on PolymerClayDaily.com

This simple sweet warbler from Melissa Terlizzi continues our review of characters. She was so anxious to hear songbirds again that she made her own. Zoom in close and you can almost hear him singing.

A smooth base shape, some marbled polymer cane feathers neatly arranged and some color details for the head, eye and beak. Melissa knows her birds!

Turns out this is one of the samples for a CraftArtEdu class that Melissa is working on! He may have to be slightly smaller to perch on your lapel.

Have you followed along on FB as Melissa drilled us on our ABC’s? She spent 26 days sculpting a most exotic alphabet.

Tolerant polymer

Heba Barazi, symbols of tolerance

The spectacular physical beauty of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque inspired Heba Bazari to create polymer art that celebrates islamic design elements. Fantastical flower designs are inlaid in the floor and the columns of the mosque.

The flower sculptures symbolize love, tolerance and mutual understanding and are a fitting feature for International Tolerance Day which is celebrated every November 16.

Strong polymer women

With strong women so necessary these days, Debbie Jackson’s  striking portrait of a Nubian woman in polymer expresses the sentiment we’re looking for. Clearly defined, unabashed woman.

The brooch is part of Debbie’s new mudcloth collection that she’ll unveil at the upcoming NOBO show in Ohio.

Women figure prominently in Debbie’s new series. You can sample it on Facebook.

Autumn leaves

Leitman on PCDaily

Moscow’s Natalia Leitman (madlen) gathers three translucent polymer leaves into a fall brooch.

The gently curved thin variegated pinks, reds, and oranges glow and show off the vein markings. See more of Natalia on Instagram and Flickr
