Polymer pile up

Fabi Perez Ajates piles up her jewelry on PolymerClayDaily.com

Spain’s Fabi Perez Ajates (Con Tus Manos) makes stacks of beads and bangles and brooches look like fascinating ceramic sculptures.

The holes and ridges and shapes in her imitative ceramic pieces all have dual purposes.

They can be worn or piled up in endlessly entertaining ways that form totems.

Fabi calls this her Coraline Jewelry since the pieces were inspired by oceanic reefs.

Concepts that ricochet

Galka Vasina cleverly combines popular designs on PolymerClayDaily

Russia’s Galka Vasina is playing here. She’s swapping beautiful components to see which ones look best together. They all work in my book.

From what I can glean from the translation, Galka was inspired by Tanya Mayorova. The commenters seemed to be lamenting what’s happening on VK, their version of Etsy.

To me these cutouts and textured components look like Sona Grigoryan meets Donna Greenberg meets Henri Matisse with a 2020 twist. Lots of artists contribute along the way.

I’ll happily jump on that bandwagon. Concepts are sometimes in the air and they pick up steam as they ricochet around the world.

A reef at your fingertips

Toni Ransfield gives us calm smiles with her coral reef pen blanks on PolymerClayDaily.com

Just looking at this coral reef pen blank from Alabama’s Toni Ransfield will drop your blood pressure and bring a Friday smile to your face. Watch her rotate the design on her Instagram.

Toni calls it, “My favorite fish blank to date. I added coral this time. I think the coral is what made it look so awesome!”

Since this tube is meant for a longer (Zen model) pen, Toni was able to include coral and layer more fish swimming under your fingertips. See more on her ClayPenBlanks site and Facebook.
