No matter how sophisticated polymer art becomes, the color and simplicity of basic canes is still one of its most alluring and enduring charms. This week I stumbled upon this Fancy necklace from Pier Voulkos. It’s twenty-three years old and still fresh and, well, fancy! Note how she used plastic-coated telephone wire to unobtrusively attach the dangles into the composition.
The necklace now resides in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts Botson (donated by Lindly Haunani).
Ohio’s Kimberly Arden was surprised when a gallery gobbled up all she had of her new summer design. We aren’t surprised. Kim’s design draws you in as she layers bullseye slices and leaf shapes over a scrap stripe background.
Some of the bullseyes and leaves are translucent which adds to the dense underwater garden illusion.The summer colors make this a design to dive into.
