Studio in a go-bag

Sarah Shriver's distinctive colors shine through her new style on PolymerClayDaily.com

California’s Sarah Shriver sounds tentative when she talks about her new collection of painted circle necklaces. She’s been a polymer artist for decades and this minimalist style is a departure. One admirer said the circles reminded her of tiddlywinks, the kids’ game.

Sarah’s complex cane work and signature color palette have been distinctive.┬áBut the past year and now fear of wildfire have shifted her thinking. She has to be able to move at a moment’s notice. She’s pared down.

These circles painted with layers of Genesis and strung on silk thread contain Sarah’s same rich and luscious colors but with a nod to efficiency and minimalism.

She’s also been refining mobiles and hollow translucent beads and more. Her new directions reflect the smart, adaptive strategy that our times require.

    I’ve been following Sarah since around the time I opened my Facebook account and started getting PCD. And that was 10 years ago! Sarah’s work is just stunning!
