New Zealand’s Marisa McLuckie sent in the link to her Piko Art Aotearoa. Polymer’s a perfect medium for recreating the koru, one of her country’s national icons and an integral symbol in Maori carving and tattoos.
Marisa’s strong unfurling frond designs are turned into unusual pendants, dreadlock beads, and hairpins that symbolize life, growth and strength. Enjoy this new work on her site.
Pasta machines worldwide
You can help standardize measurements across borders and brands of pasta machines by measuring how thick or thin your clay comes out and then filling out a quick survey. Adding your answers can help set a standard that works worldwide. The numbers will be tallied next week. It’s easy! Add your results. Thanks!

Stunning and direct! Marisa’s work is a breath of fresh air.
Anita Brandon ,
Stunning, bold, yet graceful way to honour Maori/New Zealand heritage.
I’ll ditto everything that Donna and Anita said….love this! Clean, simple and perfectly formed…nice work, Marisa!
Tinnette Hemmons ,
All her necklaces are wonderful, from the cord wrap to the faux stone look.
I like the precision and purity of the elements! Spirals are otherwise a symbol of eternity because of that, they have a special charm. Really amazing work!
What a great idea to standardise measurements for pasta machines. Mine never correlates with instuctions and I’m often left confused…. I’ll get measuring!
Wowwwww !! All her Creationss are Beautiful ^_^
Carole M ,
Such great flow to everything you do.
Including the string work.
Love her art. Cynthia, one of these days I will send my work to you. But I need to be better.
Pati Bannister ,
I love the simplicity and elegance of this piece.
I adore the polymer hairsticks. I tried making some a couple years ago and they couldn’t handle the strain of holding super long hair. I wonder if she reinforces them somehow? Either way, super gorgeous!
“simple”, elegant and really beautiful…congratulations
