Pods, pots and periods

Moore on PCDaily

On her blog you can see how Wendy Moore’s polymer pod series developed methodically and colorfully. Her collection of pod shapes offered a great place to test the understanding of color that she picked up working through Tracy Holmes’ Colour Deck.

Wendy limited her experiments to flat, textured, cutout and stacked graphic shapes and then simply linked them together.

The proof of the pudding for the project, however, was seeing Wendy (in glasses), her mother and her sister wearing the series on her Instagram site.

Wendy also reports on the latest activities of the Samunnat ladies in Nepal who traveled by bus to Kathmandu thanks to support from the polymer community. Read about their adventure here.

John and Corliss Rose have been experimenting with shooting less exhibition style photos and aiming for a looser, weirder vibe. You’ll have to click on their Absolum Pod Necklace photo to see this spunky shot.

PCD crops right into what we know you’ll want to scrutinize – the upturned shapes of the pods and the way the lively beads are connected to the tubing.

This California mixed media duo are driven by experimentation and exploration. Absolum Pods are part of their Alice in Wonderland series that started as an exercise in simplicity. You can sample the results on their Flickr site and their Etsy gallery.

Corliss is heading up the IPCA Awards this year – that’s the competition you’re planning to enter October 1, right?
