Ontario’s Karen Pasieka replaced a career in architecture with polymer. Both careers demanded attention to SubtleDetails, her business name since 2007. Bouquets, cake toppers, ornaments and framed sculptures suit her better, she decided.
She most recently began teaching how to create 31/2″ square polymer scenes like the ones above which she mounts in deep 10″ frames. “The potential for themes is endless,” she says and they can be rearranged into endlessly interesting groups. Some scenes like this alphabet, require a larger format.
