Laurie Mika’s encrusted polymer heart dazzles us with its layer of charms and Milagros. Can you imagine what her stash of glittery bits and bobs must look like?
And the leaves topping off her Peace heart are equally rich and sumptuous. A big ceramic base was wrapped with polymer and covered with jewels and treasures. Her metallic finishes, upcycled gems, and dark rich colors give her works a regal air full of meaning.
A class with Laurie is still on my bucket list. Yours too?
I’m not sure what hearts and love tokens will make it into tomorrow’s StudioMojo. At the end of the week, I open my own stash of links sent in, ideas stowed away, new tools and tidbits I’ve stumbled on. I layer them on and a theme emerges. It feels like the word equivalent of Laurie’s process. What emerges isn’t predictable but it’s pretty darn juicy and fun. Join us on Saturdays!
