Staci Smith is a Pennsylvania mixed media artist who sometimes throws polymer into the mix. Her tray of hearts ready for the oven looked so full of possibility that it pulled me right into the studio to make a few valentines of my own. Her rough and random wires add playful touches.

Staci’s new to PCDaily and you’ll enjoy her metal clay and sea glass work as you search for her polymer pieces. Look here and here.

Identifying birds

Seems that the birds I attributed to Leslie Blackford on Wednesday were made by her students. All the more reason to take a class with Leslie! The bird featured in the post was made by Barb Kunkle.

    Wow! Thanks so much for the feature. I am really enjoying the freedom of polymer clay, and love the part where I get to paint! I am so happy that you like them.

          Beautiful work, Staci! I especially like the one with the wire loops that look like wings – all so pretty!

              I was partnered with the very talented Staci for one of Lori Anderson’s recent Bead Soup Swaps, but I had no idea she had ventured into polymer clay! I love your hearts, Staci! Congratulations on the PCD feature.

                Lynda- I only began to play with polymer a bit AFTER our swap. You showed me how beautiful it can be. I really love making whimsical focals and getting to paint it. I am just so flattered everyone likes it so much.
