Jumping jack Thursday

Justyna on PCDaily

It’s Thursday so let’s dance along with these robots from Poland’s Justyna (Nibyniebo). A toy gift to her son from Grandma inspired these interactive puppets.

The polymer versions are mounted in frames and hang on the wall where they dance on command.

Justyna then added clocks with undersea settings to her Etsy offerings, all in her delightful pastel palette and built with a fresh eye and delicate touch.

“My polymer clay adventure is only a tip of an iceberg – my heart is full of paintings, miniatures, handmade notebooks, sculptures, dioramas, all those pretty things chasing me since I was small,” she says.

Justyna sent PCD her links and info (you can too) and we happily welcome her back to the polymer community. She burned the clay on her first try and abandoned it for a couple of years. Here she is on Facebook and Instagram.

Sitting Pretty polymer

Church on PCDaily

Canadian Kate Church refers to her work as sculptural puppetry combining the line and form of sculpture with the playful anima of puppetry. Here in the recent Sitting Pretty a dancer drapes herself on a sofa as she waits for her tutu.

Kate used to create figures for Cirque du Soleil which were sold around the world.

Now she creates art and teaches polymer, cloth and wire sculptural workshops that are on the bucket lists of many polymer artists.

Kate’s freshened her website making it easier to access her rich and spritely archives.
