Polymer bail beauty

Zuzana, from the Czech Republic canes and collages pendants in an increasingly interesting way. The thin buna cord accents running through the polymer bail on the top of this pendant fit right in with the rest of the design.

She nicely attributes her designs to her teachers and then takes flight on her own as you can see from her Flickr photos.

I’ve taken flight too. Checking in from the road and back home soon.

Life is like a bowl of polymer

Eakes bowl

From this angle you can hardly tell what Julie Eakes is up to with her extruded polymer mosaics. If you tip the bowl a delightful secret is revealed.

Read about how cane ends from one face project propelled Julie in a more sculptural direction. Of course she encountered problems she hadn’t planned on and found there was no turning back once she started.

This one-of-a-kind bowl is 9″ in diameter by 3.25″ deep. She plans to go bigger next time.
