South Carolina’s Kathy Koontz (Flowertown_Originals) reminds us that there’s still time to make a gift or two like these small magnetic vases that would look so pretty on a fridge or a wall.
“The leaf imprint was done by pressing some leaves from my lantana bush into the clay before curing and then highlighting the design with white paint. Simple and minimalist,” she says.
Kathy offers polymer covered seam rippers, crochet hooks, and buttons among the items on her Etsy shop.
It’s faster (and more fun) to create something at home than it is to get caught up in the holiday shopping crowds.
France’s La Perle Rouge admits in a post that one of her shows was not well attended so she kept herself busy making canes and visiting nearby thrift stores.
Voila! A new way of working!
Unleashed from her usual setting, she sliced thick cane pieces and formed them into cuplike shapes that she arranged on the thrift shop finds. The results have a happy and unconstrained look.
We could use your help with the artist’s name which we couldn’t find on either the La Perle Bijoux site or Facebook page.

This over-the-top covered ceramic teapot is from Israel’s Yehudit Yitzhak. What kind of mood do you have to be in to create a piece like this? And how many canes must you have at your fingertips?
Her works are full of energy and colors that require sunglasses. Way to start a Tuesday!
If you could use a shot of energy, go look at all her works on Flickr.
This wonky, carefree vessel was built over a wooden form and has a bright red interior. The Dr. Seuss-like form is from Texas’ Joey Barnes and its carefree attitude made it a hit in the conference auction. Examine Joey’s whimsical piece on Instagram and Facebook.
After a long drive home I’m reinvigorated and back on schedule. A few days of playing and experimenting can wake you up and move you in surprising directions. PCD is back!
