Royal couple, polymer style

Joan Israel’s vision of the royal couple may not match those in the news headlines but her 17″ polymer cane slice covered bottles have a very regal air. She’s been on a bottle jag that’s fun to study. My favorite is her scotch bottle.

We looked at Joan’s painting-by-the-slice creations earlier this year and she’s added tons of work to her Flickr site in the meanwhile. I can’t imagine the stash of canes required for this body of work!

Have your royals ready for Friday’s events!

    Those bottles are gorgeous! What an idea to focus on the royal couple and have it ready for the wedding! I am going to be proactive like that some day.
    Thanks….thanks…thanks! ~~Lyn

      These are delightful and joyful and fabulous. Be sure to visit her Flickr site. Some of her painting-by-the-slice creations had me gasping and grinning. Love it. Thanks, Cynthia.

          Oh WOW! The combination of colors, design elements, and textures are visually so appealing and the final outcome of the completed royal couple is just spectacular!

            Wow! Those are simply stunning. What a lot of work must have went into those! I don’t think I’d have the patience!

              WOW! I am in total awe and inspired to see such beautiful applications for canes! Her FlickR site is amazing!

                yes, i visited Jaoa’s Flickr site recently and sat open mouthed to see
                all her wonderful and funny creations.

                  Did you run out of bottles yet? I have more for you. These are wonderful visions. I, too, love the floating “hot” colors against black in that series. They are very calming yet a bounchy visual treat. Here’s to the next 200 polymer
                  people “hidden” in your bottles that you’ll coax to life.
