For those of us who have creative streaks, we can often find ourselves deep inside a rut … sometimes one that we can’t get out of too. In fact, those are some difficult times for an artist. One of the things that I do when I’m in a “rut” creatively is to journal. However, I can often be found purchasing fabulous online tutorials for polymer clay. Or … I order a new polymer clay book and dive deep into it’s pages.
Last year I led a year long project in conjunction with Christi Friesen called “The Friesen Project.” This year I am blessed to be a participant in another year long project, called the 52 Weeks of Canes as well as being a subscriber to Meg Newberg’s Cane Builder eZine. I have worked with polymer for more than 6 years now, but I have always had a general “fear” of caning. I have spent the past two years learning not to be afraid, and honestly have gone through a ton of clay because of the “learning curve” (Sounds better than failure, right)?! In doing so I have expanded my horizons and learned not to be afraid of caning and I am branching out and trying new things. All of this being said, this past week was spent exploring and just “playing” in my studio. I had very few specific goals … I just wanted to clay. So here’s a very small snapshot of some of that playtime.
