Polymer that begs to be rescued

Boofant showed up on Amy Koranek’s Facebook page. Amy couldn’t resist Boofant’s request to be taken home from the gala weekend at Creative Journey Studios grand opening in their new Atlanta location.

Christi Friesen rids her mind of gremlins, grouches, and goofballs by capturing creatures like BooFant in polymer. They seem pretty harmless and are very endearing – especially with the plea to be rescued (clever marketing). Christi knows how to let her imagination and her humor run wild and that’s a talent.

Join us over at StudioMojo.org for this Saturday’s deep dive into events and ideas that give us ways to release tensions and help keep us sane and busy

Polymer fly on the wall

Gesine Kratzner’s Blobhouse characters provide a whole kennel of wall pets, monsters that dangle from the ceiling and tabletop critters.

You may recognize your own friends and neighbors in her current series of People and Their Pets.

Enjoy Gesine Kratzner's odd assortment of polymer pets on PolymerClayDaily.com

If you could use a good laugh, visit Gesine’s Instagram, and her Etsy. She’s also made a rollicking fun Advent calendar for the past two years. Let’s hope she’s planning one for 2017 that we can follow.

Gesine’s Fly on the Wall shows me what I’ve always wanted to be. In fact, I’ll be your fly on the wall at this weekend’s opening of the Into the Forest Exhibit in Pittsburgh.

This slightly stunned group of CandleWycke sculptures sprouted in Dawn Schiller’s Chula Vista, CA class last weekend. They fit nicely with yesterday’s woodland find. In a second workshop Dawn taught her famous PocketFae sculpt. Wouldn’t that have been fun?

Oh well, you can glean how-to’s from her book and stroll through her world of Odd Fae on her blog and her Facebook page. This week Dawn is part of a panel of experts presenting on the Rise of the Artist Entepreneur at Comic-Con in San Diego.
