Dustin’s students’ purse beginnings

Kathleen Dustin students sculpt their purse shapes on PolymerClayDaily

What is so soothing about the golden shapes from students in Kathleen Dustin’s purse class in Georgia? The forms have a round-edged, ponderous, shape that puts me in mind of Henry Moore sculptures.

This “before” shot may make you scurry over to the Creative Journeys Facebook to see the “after” shots here.

The student work gives me “class envy.” You too? It’s almost spring and time to wake up our spirits with a class.

Polymer karma

This bracelet from Anja Overdijk (based on Helen Breil’s shapes) jarred me. You can move from pendants to bracelets and beyond using Helen’s ideas! Anja’s bracelet helped me see the possibilities.

Mentioning Helen’s book is karmic payback. Helen mentioned the Nepal women’s project to the Kazuri Bead folks in California. Because of her recommendation and with Wendy Moore’s help, the Samunnat ladies in Nepal will have their polymer beads for sale at the Tucson Bead Show. Don’t you love how that works?

Helen’s e-book is also dynamite in its own right as many of you have discovered. The link to Anja comes from Karin Breukelman who’s minding karma for the members of the Dutch Polymer Art Guild.
