Summer bouquet

Karen Pasieka gathers the flowers from her garden on PolymerClayDaily

Ontario’s Karen Pasieka has gathered the blooms in her polymer garden into a bright bouquet on a 4×4 tile. See what varieties of flowers she has in her studio garden on Instagram.

Her creation may remind you to run outside and admire summer’s bounty while you can. Karen has returned to her studio to get ready for the fall and holiday shows.

It looks like lots of you got back to the studio this week. StudioMojo is full of links to new works as we try to wring every bit of summer creativity out of this month. We’d love to have you join our Saturday newsletter where we chat about all the fun stuff we couldn’t cram into PCD. 

Garden party polymer

Debby Wakely wears her high contrast garden on PolymerClayDaily.com

The UK’s Debby Wakely’s graduated round summer beads have a crisp summery feel. Look closely and you’ll see polka dotted petals and a dab of red at the center of each dark blue flower on the clean white background.

Debby has only this one post on her Instagram (and the BritishPCGuild’s page) so she’s off to a good start! Earlier works show up on Facebook.

Are you ready for tea and scones in the garden?

 

Spring palette, stacked flowers

California’s Meisha Barbee took Carol Simmons flower class when Carol came to San Diego in early April. You can spot Carol’s refined kaleidoscopic methods in a heartbeat.

Meisha carried out the project in her own distinctive palette and with a quirky stripe here and a peppy dot there.

Her palette of colors mixed with Carol’s instructions look perfect on PCD on a colorful spring day.

See Meisha’s interesting history on PCDaily.

Beachwear for the cause

Randee Ketzel creates a polymer bra for the cause on PolymerClayDaily.com

Texas’ Randee Ketzel shows off her submission for the Breast Cancer Resource Center’s annual gala.

Randee made the flowers for Cancer, Don’t Bug Me in Carol Simmon’s class and added her own sculpted iridescent bugs. The creation will be modeled by Randee’s friend and cancer survivor Darla Breazle.

While it’s not exactly beachwear, a project like this gives you an opportunity to stretch your imagination for a good cause.

Join us as we cover more polymer finds and finery that will inspire you in this weekend’s edition of StudioMojo.

Woodland wonders from 22 countries

Vigil flowers for Into The Forest on PolymerClayDaily.com

For your weekend enjoyment, take some time wander online to see the splendor that’s been submitted to the international Into the Forest exhibit. Now try to imagine how the curators will assemble it all for the November month-long exhibit in Pittsburgh!

These glorious flowers from San Diego SandyCamper Marni Vigil look like the day lilies blooming in my yard. There are hints of Marni online on Facebook but she keeps a low profile…like many of the other quiet contributors to the exhibit.

Look at all the pods, blooms, berries, bones and more on the exhibit’s Facebook page and Instagram. It’s a stunning array of polymer from hundreds of artists in 32 states and 22 countries.

Put the event on your calendar, contribute to help cover their costs, and be proud of what you and the community are accomplishing!

And join us over at StudioMojo for juicy weekend updates.

 

 

A tangle of polymer

AnarinaAnar on PolymerClayDaily.com

A pretty tangle of polymer flowers from Greece’s AnarinaAnar rounds out PCDaily’s week.

Her pieces have a distinctive look with ceramic-like speckled finishes and dark edges that provide contrast. These flowers bobble on thin wires.

There’s a spontaneous quality about her work that starts the weekend on the right foot. Check Flickr, Facebook and Etsy if you need to soak up more of her cheeriness.
