Beefball papa on PCDaily

Beefball Papa seems an unlikely name for a polymer artist from Bejing. It could be a bad translation.

There are few other clues to guide us and we will have to let this Chinese artist’s Flickr photos speak for themselves. You can see how he has moved from creating small vessels to larger items over the last year.

His latest mokume gane striped vases are particularly interesting.

The extruded strings make his vase resemble the colorfully melted candles that were popular in the 60s. Heidi McCullough sent the link to PCD. Let us know if you find more information.

        I saw these a couple days ago (maybe on your pinterest Cynthia) and thought they were glass. I love when polymer fools me 😉

          Right on with the reference to the melted crayon candles of the 60’s–first thought that popped into my head. And the odd translation of his name is so much more interesting!I wonder how our names translate—

            The vases are stunning. I saw them on Pinterest pinned by pinner Dara M. Thanks, Dara. Thanks, Cynthia!
