Mistaken identity

In a case of mistaken identity, Sally Kirk gets featured twice on PolymerClayDaily.com

The earrings that I raved about earlier this week were from Houston’s Sally Kirk (Blossomandclay) using Moiko silkscreens. Right tool, wrong artist.

Once I fixed that, I went to her Instagram for a wander. Sally’s two little girls giggle and sing and sort components for their mom. They are very proud of her. They scribble and paint and work on their own art just like mom.

I could be wrong again, but these waterfall earrings appear to be extruded strings laid out precisely. Such a simple and glamorous treatment from Sally.


Pandemic purchases…we’ve all made them. An imprint tool that will make you a mokume gane star. A class that will uncover deep secrets. We are all susceptible to the idea of a quick fix, the magic pill.

StudioMojo will offer you a few more. If you’re lucky enough to be economically stable, some of that stimulus money could be patriotically spent supporting artists. We’re all in this together and we’ll talk you through it on StudioMojo. Join us. 

The easy/hard parts

Today our eyes gravitate to surface designs from UK’s Veronika Sturdy who claims to have a new addiction to silkscreens and imitative wood looks. She’ll be teaching her methods May 20 in a class in Czech Republic.

Silkscreens are another easy/hard part of polymer art. While silkscreens can feature delicate lines and magnificent patterns, the trick is to fiddle with the designs to make them yours – or to make your own patterns, of course.

Here Veronika combines wood textures with distressed patterns enhanced with luscious mottled colors. Look at them large on Flickr to appreciate the details. Then hop over to Pinterest to get the full behind-the-scenes treatment.
