Arieta Stavridou’s polymer-covered teapot will perk you right up. The colors dance all over its round squat shape.
There’s something homey and hospitable about these joyful pieces.
Florida’s Pamela Carman makes a flowery pot of tea on a spring Monday.
A visit to her Flickr site shows you the vases, bottles, pots, birdhouses and fish shapes that she covers with polymer.
Usually she uses hundreds of slices of small canes to build her images. Her stash of neatly stored small canes makes us caners envious.
But for today’s teapot on her Instagram she grows a garden out of layers of larger textured circles and leaves.
Is there a bottle in your kitchen that wants to be covered?
MaryAnne Loveless shares her own brand of mixed media. She throws ceramic pots, leaving spaces for polymer. Clay on clay.
A polymer stopper top or a band of color are added after the piece has been kiln fired. Of course the ceramic piece can tolerate another baking.
Nuts! I published early. My site’s clock seems to have a bug in it. I’ll try to fix it and bring you your regularly scheduled programming as soon as I can figure it out.
Of course the blooming polymer flower covered teapot from Israel’s Yehudit Yitzhaki is too much! Over the top! Color on steroids! And perfect!
Look at the delicious colors in her studio. I love the mix of influences on her Flickr pages – from hamsas, shoes and teapots to Frieda Kahlo. Plus this retired art teacher cooks Hungarian specialties. What’s not to love?
I hope your spirits are as over the top and joyful as Yehudit’s this holiday weekend.
