Buggy polymer…and a giveaway

Lehmann on PCDaily

The problem is not your monitor, there really are bugs in the system and they’re polymer from Jana Lehmann. You can watch these beetle brooches escaping from their cute little boxes.

Jana’s work is consistently the most graphic and the tidiest I’ve encountered. There’s considerable sanding involved and lots of attention to detail.

Her polymer-covered pens always appeal to me with their shapely Skinner-blended bodies and their whimsical tops. Just for fun, I’m offering five of the wooden pen bases that Jana uses as a giveaway today. I ordered a bunch from the German supplier (Bettina Welker delivered them) and they’re fun to try.

      These bugs are more than cute! They look slightly robotic–little droid bugs. Adorable!

                      Love how whimsical and playful they are, and the boxes are genius. Remind me of the magnifier boxes that children use to explore bugs close-up.

                                    I like her bugs but love the pens. Since I was a little girl I inherited my mother’s appreciation for writing instruments. And what better than to combine pens and polymer clay? Jana’s are some that look like fun.

                                        The quality of Ms. Lehman’s work makes it hard to stop looking at her soft, perfectly balanced and designed creations.

                                          Adorable bugs. Even someone who doesn’t like bugs can enjoy these. And I love her attention to detail. Simple but clean and neat.
