FOLLOW FRIDAY: Ginnie Parrish

Ginnie Randolph Parrish turns a homely shell into a lasting memory on

A shell from North Carolina’s Ginnie Randolph Parrish (BlueFrogClay) looks graceful and smooth – like it could have been sanded by waves and washed up onto the beach.

Ginnie’s a caner and makes the ugliest whelk on the beach into something spectacular by dressing it up with cane slices.

What a perfect bit of the beach to take home from a hot July weekend.

        This is fabulous, so many possibilities for creating beautiful organic shapes with polymer. Love it!

          Ginnie, thanks so much for the brief video. I immediately thought of making just half the ugliest whelk on the beach into art and leaving the other half as is. What a beautiful dichotomy!

            Ginnie’s work is outstanding, and her booth at the shows she does is a wonderland of polymer gorgeousness!

              You always do such impeccable work. Nice to see you’re still busy.
              Do you use glue under?
