Pumpkin-heads

Pete Simpson's pumpkin-heads remind us that Halloween's upon us on PolymerClayDaily.com

Before you know it, Halloween will be here. UK’s Pete Simpson (impsandthings) makes it abundantly clear that the holiday is near with a collection of pumpkin-heads prepared for the Faerie Fayre at Glastonbury.

“When you walk through the woods, graveyards, and paths near your home, keep an eye open for movement in the shadows. Listen for rustling in the leaves or the sound of tiny feet. Who knows what wonders you might see,” he cautions on his Facebook.

Pete’s heads look mighty convincing.

FOLT helpers

Leslie Blackford's pop-folk art revived on PolymerClayDaily.com

Kentucky’s Leslie Blackford revived an early series of her works with this FOLT (Finders of Lost Things) character. He has buna cord hair and a recovered treasure in his hand.

These are handy helpers at a conference like this one where we regularly misplace things. See more of Leslie’s pop-folk art on her Instagram.

Fishing for something

Fiona Abel Smith inlays stripes over a blend for her tropical fish on PolymerClayDaily.com

The UK’s Fiona Abel Smith is fishing for something on Instagram. This is no ordinary polymer fish pendant. Fiona added the details over a Skinner blend-covered sculpture. The stripes are patterned cane slices inlaid into the blend.

Fiona’s fish has personality and sparkle and believable tropical colors. She’s had some practice. Look at this school of fish she made a while back. Practice makes perfect.

Flower pot

Arieta Stavridou makes an unusual flower pot on PolymerClayDaily.com

Arieta Stavridou’s polymer-covered teapot moves away from the usual cane-slice covered pot and turns toward sculpture. Her son has dubbed it a Flower Pot.

See this pot from all vantage points on Facebook and enjoy her whole stash of teapots on her BigFish page.
