The art you need

Laurie Mika's Corona series shows us the power of art on PolymerClayDaily.com

Yes, we featured Laurie Mika’s Corona series just recently. But I need her works just now.

One friend dies, a neighbor tests positive and moves to hospice, a husband fights cancer. And I’m in Ohio, a state that is behaving responsibly!

Laurie’s art presses all my buttons. Wish us well today.

You may have been skeptical about the effect your polymer art can have. Laurie shows you how powerful it can be.

Our lady of the pandemic

Laurie Mika loves crowns so the corona figures prominently in her new art on PolymerClayDaily.com

California’s Laurie Mika has created a whole body of new mixed media work that she calls During the Pandemic.

Her polymer mosaic shrines are heavily textured, encrusted with found jewels, and stamped with prayers and sayings.

Laurie is a lover of crowns so coronas figure prominently in her shrines which have names like “Our Lady of the Pandemic” and inscriptions like the Latin “Momento Mori” (remember, we will all die).

“This pause in our lives has been one of reflection, self-discovery, re-evaluating what’s important, and finding new ways of coping,” says Laurie.

Read more about her newest creations in her newsletter and on her Etsy site. Has the pandemic affected your art?

Confronting your fears with polymer

Amy Hucks and Nicole Johnson face their fears on PolymerClayDaily.com

How do you picture this menacing virus? Polymer is a perfect medium for giving you an outlet for venting your anger, anxiety, and fears.

Here New York’s Nicole Johnson (mealymonsters) and Indiana’s Amy Hucks (supersculptor) show you their interpretations.

Nicole calls her containers of polymer specimens caught in resin Germ Jars.

Amy’s are more prickly and they’re wearing masks.

I’d love to see your versions of this monster.
