The gardens outside Maureen Carlson’s facility in Minnesota provide a testing ground for outdoor polymer sculptures. Some have decorated the landscape for up to seventeen years.
Student Jacqui Stratton’s head has sat with others in the studio window for years, a product of one of Maureen’s Faces on Stone classes. We could hardly detect where the stone ended and the polymer began.
Polymer survived the seasons nicely on any number of garden sprites tucked among the vegetation and faces hung on fences. You can see more examples on my Instagram page. Class is over. We’re headed home with heads full of ideas for decorating our own homes and gardens.
