Polymer pods connect

2roses on PCDaily

John and Corliss Rose have been experimenting with shooting less exhibition style photos and aiming for a looser, weirder vibe. You’ll have to click on their Absolum Pod Necklace photo to see this spunky shot.

PCD crops right into what we know you’ll want to scrutinize – the upturned shapes of the pods and the way the lively beads are connected to the tubing.

This California mixed media duo are driven by experimentation and exploration. Absolum Pods are part of their Alice in Wonderland series that started as an exercise in simplicity. You can sample the results on their Flickr site and their Etsy gallery.

Corliss is heading up the IPCA Awards this year – that’s the competition you’re planning to enter October 1, right?

      This is literally the first time I have spent over 2 hours (in one sitting) on an artist’s site (2 artists, as it were). If I had had more time I would probably still be there. Not only are their pieces beyond amazing, the descriptions and comments extremely entertaining and informative. I even love all their tools! I know I will go back, so this web site will go to my desktop. Best treat this summer or maybe all of 2013 so far. Thank You!!!!!
