Scraps of Autumn

Liga Valge combines autumn colors on PolymerClayDaily.com

Before the leaves fall and the lawn turns white with frost, let’s breathe in some autumn colors from Ireland’s Liga Valge. Sometimes scraps tell a story of their own.

Halloween will collide with voting this week. A real mishmash. It’s hard to focus. Let me know if you create something inspired.

Fall meets winter in a brooch

Valerie Bodino Nazet lets fall and winter collide gracefully in a polymer brooch on PolymerClayDaily.com

Now isn’t that the essence of fall?

France’s Valérie Bodino-Nazet situates a polymer shield shape of fall’s oranges, golds, and blues next to winter’s black and whites. She bisects the brooch with a flowing wire shape. 

I couldn’t tell if Valerie had finished the construction when she took this photo but my eye shouted, “Stop! That’s it.”

Here’s the brooch on Instagram.
