Holden’s urchin imitations

This lovely arrangement of polymer clay urchin beads by Vancouver’s Tina Holden gives us a last look at the beach this summer.

Tina’s not the only one to borrow from Mother Nature, of course, but her imitations are particularly inviting and soothing – like a cool dip underwater.

I’m baffled by how Tina creates her hollow forms and glad to hear that Canada has made collecting these real creatures from their waters illegal.
