Spring polymer birds

Tayler's polymer bird necklace

Victoria’s Joan Tayler has added the cutest quail to her polymer bird menagerie complete with a photo of the construction. Her strand of colorful birds is a happy reminder that spring is here.

Joan ventures into fiber related projects but is always pulled back to polymer by the creatures that fly by her window. She set up a little studio in a corner of the kitchen while on a recent vacation and said, “Quail are a big deal here so I have made a lot of them…also loons, redwing black birds, eagles and chickadees.”

This Monday Joan reminds us to look closely and to take inspiration from what’s around us.

        Are these birds hand painted? WOW> I was having trouble getting motivated this morning, but I all better now.

                Joan is one of my best clay friends and I love the little creatures she makes — especially her birds. I have sat and watched her make them and she makes it looks so easy. It is a really talent and gift that she has.
