Spirited seasonal icons

Anita Kennerley and Jan Montarsi tweak holiday icons on PolymerClayDaily.com

Simple designs contain great charm at this time of year.

Ohio’s Jan Montarsi gives dimension to the snowmen pins he made for a swap by shadowing their rounded edges. To give them personality he splurges on scarves, hats, and earmuffs.

Anita Kennerley builds her angel earrings by wrapping a circle and using hearts for wings. Using only a red circle, white belt, and black belt buckle, her earrings say that Santa is coming.

It’s the merry attitude in these designs that captures the spirit of the season.

Making Santa in polymer

Carlton on PCDaily

Kentucky’s Keven Carlton has been looking for Santa. She started her search by sculpting these affable old fellows and she has a way with men.

Keven spends time giving them good teeth because she’s a dental hygienist and bad teeth would be unprofessional.

But somewhere along the line, her polymer imagination veered off course and she ended up with a heap of dissipated and debauched Santas that her Facebook friends are all talking about. They’re trying to locate the art show where these creatures can be purchased.

Creativity can take us on a wild ride. I don’t often chuckle and snort at polymer art but Keven makes us laugh as her Santas come to life. Have a happy weekend.

Polymer clay reasons to believe and recycle

This comfy, couch potato polymer clay Santa by Dennis Brown could make me a believer again. It comes from the “ReasonsToBelieve” site, a treasure trove of Santas.

Brown’s work has been licensed by several reproduction companies and these are the polymer originals. He makes Santas 365 days a year. Thanks to Susan Lomuto for the tip.

Kudos to Heather Powers (HumbleBeads) for her wins in the Bead Star competition from Interweave Press. She combines and collages beads and found items into evocative pieces.

Iris Mishly has jumped on the recycled band wagon too, using throwaways from her computer job as findings for her polymer clay work. Have a useful weekend.
