After the wonderful intensity of yesterday’s polymer clay pieces I felt drawn in the opposite direction. I headed to my French links for a dose of spontaneity and colorful exuberance.

I couldn’t find the artist’s name on this site. She’s elusive, my French is terrible and I’m hoping someone will reveal her to us. (She’s Dominique Franceschi. Thanks to Marilyn V. for identifying her.) Scroll all the way down to see some quick and clever extrusions turned into mokume gane. This work shows what playful confidence can produce.

Thanks for the link goes to Singapore’s Rita Sim.

    Yes this is a great artist and her name is Dominique.

      Dominique is our manager from a French group : Creationfimo !
      She is doing always splendid things with polymer clay, peints and others…
      She likes nature colors, but this time, with the clay gun, she would like to dream with colors, and let them go by themselves !!

        You’re right, Dominique (or “Domi”) is a creative, imaginative and generous artist !

            Delicious! I really love the “fun” these pieces display!

              Yum! After scrolling down the page to find the “secret” I can add another “play with it” technique to my arsenal. I’ve tried packing the scraps in the clay gun to see what happens and got near mud. This looks tres cool.

                Fab work. And her finishing is meticulous. Makes my semi-sanded fingers ache just thinking about it!

                Frip On!

                  What a nice surprise to see Dominique’s creation here ! This is a great artist, I warmly recomand you to visit on her blog the travel through her necklesses. She describe throught the color of her beads some countries all over the world … One of my favourite part of her travel is “The road to India” here :
                  Have a nice day ;o) !

                      Thank you for including a link to my Polymer Clay website on August 8 with correction on my country of residence which is Singapore.

                      I’ve always admire your creations, Dominique and I frequently visit your website.

                        If you copy and paste the url of any page you want to translate into google, naturally it usually will find the page, but best of all, it will have a link to translate the page. Certainly the translation is far from perfect and can be confusing, but it is helpful.
