Laurie Mika’s polymer clay/mixed media “Sacred Heart” looks like a perfect Valentine for you.
Her workshops at April’s Artfest in Washington are full but that won’t keep you from enjoying a tasty treat of her work here and here. Mika says she has “a passion for combining and overlapping a variety of mediums creating an original style of mixed-media mosaics and assemblage using handmade tile.”
Follow-up: Ronna Weltman wants you to see a better example of the work we showed yesterday (photo by Doug Yaple). She’s donating it to the Synergy auction next week. If you’re donating something to the auction, I’d be pleased to show it off here (and you’ll be helping me expedite my posts as I pack for Baltimore). Email me.

Ooh — Bettina’s cuff is charming and delightful. Thanks for doing this, Cynthia. Looking forward to more sneak peaks from others …

Both of these pieces are lovely and so is Laurie’s. It’s going to be hard trying to decide WHAT to bid on!
Just found your site through Makin Art, what a wonderful blog and great images – makes me wish I could take a class and have fun with this material. Though I think it looks so easy I know it’s not! Clay is very much an art form that I don’t know (yet). 🙂
thanks for the inspiration!
