Endangered melonious

Endanged melonious by Katrin Lukashuk on PolymerClayDailycom

Who knew there were watermelon people? Ukraine’s Katrin Lukashuk knows them and has captured them in polymer!

She’s also produced mixed media gorgons, fireflies, stones and other creatures from her imagination which she shows on Instagram and sells on Etsy.

Watermelon people have been a hit on the Art Toy Gama Collective that features toys and urban arts.

Fans speculate that melonious people are endangered because they’re so delicious!

Whimsy week

Corbitt's pigmy marmoset visits PolymerClayDaily.com during whimsy week

It’s turned into PCD whimsy week and today’s features come from Washington’s Dayna Corbitt (WhimsyCalling). “I’m assuming you love all things fantastical, slightly odd, and melt-your-face-off-cute. I am the same sort,” says Dayna.

Here she dreams up a marmoset and a blue baby armadillo. Recently she added albino bats, butterfants, a lotus turtle, a dragon, a sloth with a cactus on its head, and a cute alien.

This kind of creation may not be wandering around in your head (not in mine, for sure) but we sure can admire the fantasy and the skill it takes to bring these creatures to life. See more on Facebook and Etsy.

Whimsy for the weekend

BoingBoing featured Dayna Corbitt’s (WhimsyCalling) impossibly cute polymer clay figurines of whimsical and mythical animals.

This Olympia, WA artist quit her day job a month ago. “I found my happy place and it’s made of clay,” she says in a feature on BoredPanda. You’ll find her menagerie of real and fantasy creatures on Instagram, Facebook and Etsy.

Dayna’s Black Bear Cubs, 1 1/2″ high in their winter sweaters look ready for a chilly weekend. Enjoy it!

Mystical polymer themes

Italy’s Serena Pannunzio (Eala Jewels) created this Golden Leaf on the Water pendant, as a commission based on her polymer series inspired by fantasy, celtic culture and mythology.

Drops and swirls of polymer gather next to each other to form what looks like a darkly clustered design.

Paints and metallic finishes give the pendant luster and echoes of an ancient story. She shares more of her own history on Deviant Art and Pinterest. You can see how she is drawn to mystical themes that she loves to revisit and rearrange.

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.

Polymer damselfly

Obakke on PCDaily

Lestes, the Damselfly is a 12-inch tall polymer and fabric creature created by the Filigree, a Nashville-based husband and wife team. Martin Øbakke, native of Denmark home to the little Mermaid, met Celena Cavala, ballerina and Nashville native, in Italy where they started making fairy tales.

Martin does the illustrating and polymer sculptures while Celena sews and writes about the fantasy they live in, the Filigree. In their world the filigree are thin gossamer strands that connect everything.

The couple offered their latest creations this week and already they’ve all flown away. Each Damselfly comes with immigration paperwork. You can see the entire collection including their dragons and unicorns on Flickr.
