Rattan and polymer
California’s Victoria James shapes polymer clay into bottoms and tops for her woven baskets.
Look at her Flickr site to see how she makes a polymer base to begin her weaving or fashions a lid to top off a basket.
For years Victoria was best known for her natural texture sheets made from patterns harvested from the woods. It looks like you can still buy them on her website.
Victoria’s pace has been slow and steady. Her works take time. The concept of working at your own pace will be front and center in this week’s StudioMojo where we’ll look at the tension between creativity and efficiency. Join us!
