Mixing spring in your hands

Clare Lloyd celebrates spring with soft seasonal colors on PolymerClayDaily.com

UK’s Clare Lloyd mixes up spring colors that make us breathe in lilacs and peonies, closing our eyes to exhale.

One of the true pleasures of polymer is the ability to create spring right in your hands. Color mixing is a particularly satisfying studio chore this weekend.

Speaking of studio chores, our class will be mixing colors galore with Lindly Haunani. What a week it was for StudioMojo research. I can’t believe how many spring goodies I found. Come on over and celebrate spring with us.

Blooming spring

Tracy Feldwick's bloom opens on PolymerClayDaily.com

How do I know spring has sprung? There are delicious colors all over including this pod from Australia’s Tracy Feldwick (Mimosa Muse on IG and Twitter)

But wait, March isn’t Spring in Australia! Ah, this was posted several months ago. That explains.

She mixes patterns inside and out. Her stamen are gaining color as they grow. Spectacular.

Art deco spring

Eried's earring blooms will make you believe in spring again on PolymerClayDaily

Greece’s Eri Dimitriadi (Eried) restores our faith in spring with these ocean blue earring dangles. She calls them art deco. You may see them as spring blooms.

 

Eri is a full-time architect and part-time polymer artist. She has a delicate touch and a spare, architectural sensibility. If these grab you, you’ll want to see more on her Instagram.

Spring bouquet

Bonnie Bishoff offers a spring bouquet at the ACC show in Baltimore on PolymerClayDaily.com

Bonnie Bishoff offers us a bouquet of buds with her latest brooch.

My heart did a little flip for the colors, the simplicity, the beauty of this piece that she’ll be offering at the ACC show in Baltimore this weekend. It seems to promise that spring is on the way. Don’t you want to brush your fingertips over the buds?

On StudioMojo we’ll be discovering other polymer artists in the ACC show. The emerging artist award went to a polymer artist who’s new to PCD. Come on over and see all the exciting stuff that doesn’t quite fit into the daily posts. 

Hints of spring

Loretta Lam's colors and shapes hint at spring on PolymerClayDaily.com

Patterns and colors skip around this necklace from Loretta Lam. A dark oval focal bead anchors the piece.

No dramatic shapes or crazy textures but a subtle mix of earthy colors that draw your eyes in with hints of spring.
