These tangles of polymer clay extruded threads protruding from blank walls are simple in a complex way. “I am interested in the potential for emotion and nuance within an aesthetically minimal context,” says California artist Jessica McCambly of her spare, shadowy installations.

The titles of her works are equally cryptic and spare – “to leave, especially at the beginning of a journey” and “to change from the usual or expected way“. Seeing polymer clay outside its usual patterned, craft context is inspiring.

Life got in the way of my blogging today. Thanks to Susan Lomuto for providing this Tuesday treat at just the right moment.
