Dad’s ties in polymer

Olja brings silk ties to polymer on PolymerClayDaily.com

These pieces from Germany’s Olja (@olgasmodeschmuck) look like men’s silk tie patterns.

There’s something very buttoned-down and crisp about the blue gradations intersected by gold lines. The bail is made from the same clay.

The polka-dotted element loosens up the tight geometry.

I couldn’t find much info on Olja. Care to comment with some details or links?

A nudge for swap items

Lynn Yuhr's leaves for a swap raise the bar on PolymerClayDaily.com

I’m smitten with these modern collaged leaves from Florida’s Lynn Yuhr. The gradations, the canes, the painted details on her slightly cupped leaves can’t be missed.

These are some of Lynn’s swap items for an upcoming retreat and they raise the bar for the rest of the participants who are still mulling over what to make.

We try to stay away from competitiveness but it creeps in whether we like it or not. A nudge like this one from Lynn makes for an exciting swap.

Circling back

A jolt of color propels us through the week. This one is an award winner from France’s Alabala Bijoux (I couldn’t find her name). It was named the winner in round one of the Lucy Clay Cutters Challenge for October.

You can’t lose with circles and she shows us how with cane slices of several sizes, colors and gradations layered on a base. It’s a cheerful and energetic piece to help us round out the week.
