Summer baskets

Basket weave polymer gives Phoebe's earrings a summery feel on PolymerClayDaily.com

Phoebe (Otie & Co) introduces breezy basketweaves into her swingy earrings.

The texture adds hints of lazy days, picnic baskets, and porch furniture.

Phoebe started making boho baby art when she first started. That quickly morphed into baby mama jewelry and art.

Balancing demands

Betsy Baker considers demands on her time on PolymerClayDaily.com

Catch a good look at these shimmering hollow big beads from Boston’s Betsy Baker (StonehouseStudio). She made this labor-intensive patterned series during the lockdown.

“Now that life and shows are getting back to normal, I won’t have time,” she says.

Seclusion also gave Betsy time to dabble in designing and making dresses. Take a look at her Instagram.

Are there favorites that you’ll have to set aside now that demands for your time are changing?

Throw scraps on the walls

Jess Erickson and her daughter celebrate their scraps on PolymerClayDaily.com

Michigan’s Jess Erickson (cryingheartcraftco) and her young daughter show off the scrap flowers they cut out to decorate her bedroom.

I get misty thinking about how my daughter and I discovered polymer together as we made cakes and pizzas for her dollhouse.

There’s no better way to boost a kid’s confidence than to decorate their space with bright happy memories of creative times together.

Only the wearer knows that the back is as interesting as the front. Donna added an overlay of cutout clay. It’s like a private message from the artist.

Donna reminds us that the back is as important as the front.

Now she merges painting and polymer this new Lotus Pond panel. Watch her add these blossoms on a background of swirled and spiraling extruded strings of blue.

This month all Rachana’s sales are being donated to the COVID 19 crisis in India.

Spring on steroids

Sherstin Schwartz makes gardens that climb the walls on PolymerClayDaily.com

Minnesota’s Sherstin Schwartz (lifeofapaintbrush) admits that she’s an alien.

She sculpts flowers, pods, mushrooms, and other vegetation in eye-popping colors and mounts them on square tiles.

Sherstin calls herself an alien floral designer and her exaggerated shapes and lush colors help you understand why.

The effect of her polymer gardens gathered on a wall will wake up your Monday.

 

Radical polymer

Sayra Lopez shows rebelliousness in her art on PolymerClayDaily.com

Switzerland’s Sayra Lopez (NinkaPop) takes the minimalist vibe that’s everywhere and turns it into Radical Fashion that stands out.

“It’s about being brave, standing up for what you believe in, and standing up for you,” she says. It’s for the rebellious ones, the misfits, the ones who make their own rules.

NinkaPop’s designs often mix media. Here they sandwich resin between high voltage color polymer. Their collections also include smooth clear shapes in acrylic. Experience their approach on Instagram.
