Winter polymer canes

Some polymer artists have been able to get beyond Halloween and jump right to winter. These two snowy examples (they’re both Canadian) may get you thinking holidays too.

Carolyn Good, 2 Good Claymates, created this snowflake covered candle collar with an easy tutorial for the cane on her site. She and her husband work out of their studio in Chase, B.C.

Wanda Shum is building up her stash of holiday canes. Can’t wait to see what she does with them all.

I’ll be leaving for snow-country (Minneapolis) and the ACC Creating a New Craft Culture conference later this week and I’m in a bit of a rush to finish an inlaid bowl before I leave. With any luck I’ll show it off tomorrow.

        Thanks for the link, Cynthia! Those christmas canes have become ornaments and earrings and pins. I used to do them a few years ago and decided to bring them back this year!
