Polymer that grew faster than expected

How Boe Holder's succulents took off on PolymerClayDaily

The popularity of Boe Holder’s sculptures took her by surprise. “I made them for myself, but they ran away with me. I can’t make them fast enough,” says the young UK mixed media artist (thiswaytothecircus) of her popular polymer mini succulents.

They come in sets of five and each set is cleverly named after one of more than 2,000 varieties of cacti. See more on Instagram and Facebook.

Boe’s latest is a collection of slightly less mini jungle islands like the one shown here that contain the same Seussian aesthetic. Succulents are all the rage and it may help that you can’t kill these delightful polymer versions.

This bowl of succulents from California’s Kim Korringa was a marvel to behold. Everything…the 6″ rock bowl, the succulents, the soil, even the string-of-pearls…was made of polymer.

You can tell from Kim’s attention to detail that she’s quite a gardener.

Meanwhile, Kim was also working on a line of caned Christmas jewelry for the Uno Alla Volta catalog adding minuscule ornaments on yards of caned trees.
