POLYMER ARTIFACTS APPEAR IN POLYMER CLAY DAILY!

Today I saw an update in my inbox from Cynthia Tinapple’s delightful blog, It was titled Polymer Artifacts so of course I had to take a peek.

Even more delightful, it turns out it’s about MY polymer artifacts!!

It’s an honor to be featured in PCD, as Cynthia scopes out the best work in polymer clay around the world. Thank you, Cynthia!

There’s a nice balance between focusing your work and being inspired by others’ work. The last few years, I’ve been hunkered down, focusing on keeping my vision clear, and trying not to envy the incredible work being made by other artists. Lately, I realized I’ve hunkered down too much. Cynthia’s blog helps me see a bigger picture of the world. It’s time to explore and see what else is out there.

I also see it’s time to update my images on my website. My beloved photographer, Jeff Baird, died of lung cancer three years ago. I owe a big chunk of my success to his beautiful images of my work. It’s been hard to admit that he’s gone, and I’ve been reluctant to switch out the pics. But Jeff would be the first one to tell me it’s time to do that. Wherever you are, Jeff, know that you are deeply missed.

Enjoy!

  1. What an unexpected thrill for you to come face to face with your little treasures on-screen at PCD! I think as well as seeing everyone’s PC work on Cynthia’s site, I enjoy finding undiscovered blogs, such as yours, just as much. Your artifacts are gorgeous, Luann!

  2. Talk about an inspiration, Luann, you have been one of mine since I first encountered you on the Carving Consortium. I was delighted to see the Polymer Clay Daily article lauding your work. Best wishes for your continuing success!

  3. You write my heart. I would love to buy your blogs in the form of a book.

    Luann-I just read the green eyed monster and then this entry. I was immediately drawn to your art and have always found it amazing. It is powerful in ways that most polymer pieces are not. I too have struggled with jealousy of other artists work & have come to realize I need to be creating, not discounting my unique artwork. Love the mismatched earrings, I like to rock that look too.
