Barbara McGuire’s shimmering mokume

Barbara Mcguire's painterly approach to mokume gane on PolymerClayDaily.com

North Carolina’s Barbara McGuire will be teaching her own special brand of Mokume Gane this weekend at Tryon’s Arts and Crafts school. These class samples have me salivating.

Barbara’s Shimmering Mokume brings influences from Gustav Klimt with a touch of Paul Klee (to my eye at least).

Wouldn’t you love to know how she arrives at such painterly pieces?

Study her on Facebook. She offers some wonderfully deep rubber stamps in her Etsy shop.

Bullseye hits the spot

Kate Lee Foley's bullseye earrings hit the spot on PolymerClayDaily.com

Some days, the trusty bullseye cane really hits the spot. Take these earrings from Australia’s Kate Lee Foley.

Nothing pretentious or complicated about these swingy cutouts. The yellow background picks up one of the cane colors. Kate calls her earrings “…a little Gustave Klimt.”

Stuck for an idea? Try a bullseye.

Klimt rubs off on polymer

Leanne Fergus updates Klimt with polymer on PolymerClayDaily.com

Australia’s Leanne Fergus brings a bit of inspiration from Gustav Klimt to polymer. She updates Klimt with a hint of circuit board imagery.

This square golden brooch sold quickly after she posted it on Instagram. She hadn’t even added the resin coat before it was snatched up.

The geometric textures are accented with dabs of jewel tone colors. Take in all the sparkle and movement captured under a glass-like layer of resin.
