Sila’s polymer rinds

Ponsawan Sila makes us grin as we end the week and begin a hot summer. Last summer her friend posed wearing a slice of real watermelon as a fashion statement from her garden.

Without missing a beat, Ponsawan created her own version in polymer. The rind is made from a mokume gane stack of shades of green. The interiors are Skinner blends of red to white.

She’ll be adding these rind rings to her Etsy store soon. Have a juicy weekend.

    That’s really cool! I visisted her blog and love the little mini Ring version of the bracelet too.

      I had the pleasure of sitting with Ponsawan for three days during the 2009 IPCA retreat. She is clever. Always. Unexpectedly. With words. With those twinkling eyes. AND with clay.

      I think wearing one of those bracelets would make one feel fresh breezes.

          I would probably try to eat it!

                Thanks Cynthia and thanks Maureen, you always find the special words to describe me. I don’t even know I have such qualifications.

                    So much fun and so well done. That’s one creative slice of watermelon.

                      That is to cool, am thinking it would look even ‘cooler’ if it look just a bit frosty, like with transparent water droplets dappled about.

                        Ponsawan, you are one of the most creative people I know. It is a pleasure to sit beside you (and across the table from you) at the guild meetings. I am always interested in seeing what you do with the clay that we’ve worked on in our monthly workshops. Thank you so much for sharing.

                          By all mean, Lynn, I would love to see “cooler’ look. How about the yellow watermelon?
                          Pat, so you meant to say I do not always follow the instruction and end up making something else instead of what othere people are working on? 🙂 Shame on me.

                            Hardly Ponsawan. You’re just darn creative and you always have a twist that others – namely me – don’t have. You inspire and awe me. Don’t change a thing. I love you just the way you are.
