Colorado’s Karen Sexton says that these luminous polymer clay pins she just finished are the result of a simple process. She lightly painted Pinata inks on thin alternating layers of translucent and pearl clay and stacked the layers.
She impressed the stack with various tools, mokume gane style. Thin slices of the resulting cane were applied to a pearl backing to create the pins. A deceptively simple process.
What she leaves out of this description is her lovely sense of balance and color. Karen’s one of those artists without a site and her local guild’s site is under reconstruction. The guild will have a new gallery of members work up soon but I couldn’t wait to show you Karen’s fine work.
