Polymer with grit

Marisa Winston makes earrings for women with grit on PolymerClayDaily.com

These pale iridescent curls of textured polymer form earrings in the summer collection of North Carolina’s Marisa Winston.

Her shop named Ostrea means ‘oyster’ in Latin. “Everyone is familiar with the phrase ‘no grit, no pearl,’ but my experience has taught me how true this really is,” Marisa says.

The name is a reminder of the power we have to transform life’s grit into resilience, inner beauty, and strength. Her earrings are made for “women with grit.”

Swimming in polymer

Donna Greenberg dives into a 10' commission on PolymerClayDaily.com

Imagine making this 10′ x 28″ triptych commission! New Jersey’s Donna Greenberg takes viewers on a deep dive to an ocean floor filled with her fantasy biosystems.

Donna’s studio must have been swimming in undersea pieces and bio parts for months.

Shapes that look strange and foreign on their own, come together in a believable new landscape. Her last step is to adjust the painted surfaces slightly to lead the eye comfortably through the new 10′ wonderland she created. Immerse yourself in the close-ups and in-process shots on Facebook.
