Cheeky slab polymer

Katie Long brings Brooklyn to Australia on PolymerClayDaily

Australia’s Katie Long (Hellotherecheeky) wakes up your Wednesday with this in-your-face color palette.

You’ve probably noticed how fond the Aussies are of what they’re calling “Slab Polymer” (google it). Lay down a base slab of clay and layer on tiny pieces of design. Flatten and cut out shapes you can use. They’ve become masters at it.

It’s the punchy, fearless colors and layers of abstract elements that set off a big YES in my gut. Katie adds a coat of resin for shine. She’s on Instagram here. This collection is called “Brooklyn”…gotta love that.

Philadelphia’s Vanessa Dunn (XENIASTUDIO) calls these her Wave earrings. She’s paired up with a Philly-based ethical clothing company who had their model wear her abstract polymer earrings in a shoot.

Her earring designs blend beautifully with Voloshin’s breezy billowy cotton designs.

Vanessa sprinkles shots of her earrings on models throughout her Instagram to great effect. Photos on models say much more than a straightforward description.

She sells on Etsy.

 

 

Abstract earrings

Pickled Ginger makes wearable abstract paintings on PolymerClayDaily.com

A visit to Bonnie Gilmore’s Hatching Sparrows led me to the mother lode of Australian polymer artists. We may have to mine this all week.

But I digress. These merrily collaged earrings are from Fee’s Pickled Ginger though they’re mostly sold out.

Flat thin cutouts of leaves and feathers are bunched with brightly patterned narrow slivers that hang from a dot.

It must be like wearing a moving abstract painting.
