You may enjoy reading about the birth of this sculpture from Latvia’s Diana Sh. Palma.
Diana envisioned this as her first polymer purse and decorated it heavily with what she imagined as underwater blooms. But the result was so weighty that carrying it presented a problem..
She decided instead to consider the creation a keepsake box. But Plan B didn’t work because the top and bottom had baked themselves together (probably due to the weight again).
Please admire her lovely objet d’art!
You can see more of Diana’s polymer work (including tutorials) on Etsy and on Facebook. Browse her impressive collection of flowers on Flickr. She has a board devoted to art purses on Pinterest and she plans to make another attempt.
