Explosions of color

Lindsay Locatelli combines color and dimension on a volcanic cuff on PolymerClayDaily

Small volcanos threaten to spew color all over the place on Lindsay Locatelli’s latest cuff.

Painted spouts rise up and give the piece a weirdly satisfying dimension. Then just when you’re creeped out by the spitting spouts, you notice the sumptuous gold leaf on the interior. This cuff delights on all cylinders.

Lindsay’s toddler doesn’t seem to have slowed down her creative output. She’s teaching a 4-day class in Wisconsin next weekend. Don’t miss her spiky earrings on Instagram.

Bannister on PCDaily

Seems to be a blingy week! The over-the-top color, glitz and shine of these simple lightweight earrings from North Carolina’s Pati Bannister screamed, “Pick me! Pick me!”

Pati pulled out her gold leaf and alcohol inks as she riddled the clay with Peter Max ’60s textures and colors. See more of this series on Flickr, her blog and on Etsy. Her colors and ideas shine through on her Pinterest boards too.
