Fiona Abel-Smith captures a conversation in an polymer on PolymerClayDaily.com

There are easy-breezy polymer approaches with pieces joyfully slap-dashed together. And then there are intense and enthusiastic polymer artists.

Yesterday we had intense miniature cats. Today it’s butterflies.

UK’s Fiona Abel-Smith dives deep to create When I Grow Up a 4 x 16 x 8-inch sculpture. There’s a metaphor embedded in this caned and sculpted piece.

Fiona says, “The little caterpillar doesn’t realize that she will grow into a beautiful moth and is already a stunner in her own right if only she could see herself as we do.”

Fiona documents her progress in videos and photos on Facebook and shows us the intensity required to tell her story.
