As I sorted the posts and pictures grabbed for this week’s StudioMojo I realize I’ve collected exciting polymer works made for no particular reason. These bowls of balls are a case in point.
Baltimore’s Linda Loew admits that her bowls of balls aren’t very functional. She liked the colors…so why not add a few more? And some texture just for fun?
I take it back…there is a good reason. The pieces we’ll feature this week were made joyfully to please the artist. In Linda’s case, she was making bowls for a swap at an upcoming polymer conference. The point is that perfection can be tedious, driven, and controlled. Come on over to StudioMojo and watch polymer artists let loose, have some fun!

Not functional? I have tons of little bowls this size on my worktable! Like the photo, I use them to sort and organize beads, findings, odds & ends, when I’m working on a project. And small bowls are often sold as “ring dishes”, too. These are lovely, colorful, and nicely designed. Good work, Linda!
