Blue Yonder in polymer

Lyn Tremblay explores the Blue Yonder in polymer for a group art show on PolymerClayDaily.com

Ontario’s Lyn Tremblay takes painting with polymer in a different direction with her Blue Yonder, a 12″x12″ square abstract for a group show, Art with Panache. Colors collide, textures bump into each other, layers reveal and hide each other. Lots of energy here!

Lyn’s painting fits in nicely with this week’s StudioMojo discussion about what it means to bring joy to your workspace. We’ll consider what we like to look at and live with and why. Come on over and join us for a little bit of Saturday morning joy.  

Chunky polymer hoops

Flat polymer shapes turn into hoops from Genevieve Williamson on PolymerClayDaily.com

Pennsylvania’s Genevieve Williamson shows the chunky polymer hoops on her work table.

Subtle texturing on the polymer adds intrigue. The variety of shapes and muted colors make it hard to choose a favorite. Bending the wires to hang just right would be challenging. Genevieve was trained as a metalsmith so she jumps right in.

Look at them on Instagram. They’ll be in her Etsy shop soon.

Beads to fondle

Doreen Gay Kassel creates a potpourri of beads to fondle on PolymerClayDaily

Since my network is taunting me with an intermittent signal, we’ll lean on New York’s Doreen Gay Kassel for a post that requires few words and a quick upload.

Just look at those beads! The colors and textures beg us to fondle them. You can look more closely on Instagram.

Wifi repairman has been called! I had to walk over to my studio to post. They have a fiber connection that has spoiled me.  

50 Days of shimmering veneers

Leanne Fergus puts a glitzy touch on day 50 of her 100 veneers project on PolymerClayDaily

Melbourne’s Leanne Fergus loves mixed media on polymer clay. Pearly, shiny, glowing, golden…anything that shimmers is right up her alley. Texture adds another level of interest and intrigue.

Leanne is up to day 50 on her 100-day project and it’s paying off. Some veneers she captures under resin.

Flip through her Instagram to see how she’s progressed. “When I’m in my workroom creating I feel like everything including time, stands still. It is my therapy, meditation and happy place.  It is a time for being fully in the moment and recharging my spirit,” says Leanne.

Her new website is stunning.

Wrinkled polymer

On Facebook, Ponsawan Sila shares her texture trick for these playful beads. She wraps the base beads in crepe paper and gives the paper a twist to create the illusion of wrinkled fabric. Then she applies the circles of color. 

Ponsawan Sila wraps and rolls on PolymerClayDaily.com

Whenever I’m exasperated with the rush of silly stuff online, I think of people like Ponsawan who moved from Indiana to Thailand. She stays in touch! She’s still one of the gang sharing her creative sparks with all of you. It’s good to be reminded that these connections can make our lives better. Thanks, Ponsawan.

Polymer transformations

Sona Gregoryan transforms textures on PolymerClayDaily.com

These new hoop earrings from Sona Grigorian transform into a pendant. She’s not sharing the process yet but this queen of deep, layered textures has a YouTube channel full of her tricks and tutorials.

Sonya is inspired by Gaudi’s organic Spanish architectural forms. She mixes those shapes with memories of her Armenian roots and religious traditions to create her own mysterious and distinctive style.

You can quickly keep up with her evolving aesthetic on Instagram and Facebook.

How has your style evolved and transformed?
