WIP Wednesday July 2017 in Review at KatersAcres

WIP Wednesday is here again! It’s time for the month end review at KatersAcres. WIP Wednesday posts are becoming further apart these days for many reasons.

WIP Wednesday’s sometimes make me tired. Let me explain. Have you ever looked around at all the pictures you’ve taken throughout the past two weeks and simply been blown away? It’s no secret that I don’t do polymer clay full time, but that I also serve as a minister alongside my hubby. So when I flip back through the last several weeks of pictures and try to pull a few to interest you, my darling readers, sometimes I get tired. These past two weeks have been a flurry of activity, especially with last week being Holy Week.

WIP Wednesday’s Back Again!

WIP Wednesday with KatersAcres | Work in Progress, New Releases, Featured Artists, News, and SO Much More - CLICK to read it all!

At the beginning of the year I asked all of you, my darling readers, if you still enjoyed the WIP Wednesday posts. I asked because sometime posts like this are hard to read because there’s no real “theme” to the post itself, because it’s really a collection of random “stuff” gathered over the past 1-2 weeks of what’s been going on here in my studio. I’ve tried to add in polymer clay community news, highlights of other polymer artists, as well as some more information to aide in your polymer joy. So never forget to look at the bottom of the page too!

WIP Wednesday in KatersAcres Polymer Clay Studio

Do you ever feel you’re surrounded with WIP? Still wondering what WIP is? WIP is “Work in progress” or “Work in progression” or “Work in procrastination” or “work in process” … to be honest it depends on the week as to what the “P” in WIP actually means. Regardless, the past several weeks have been very busy and filled with a ton of creating & busy work here at KatersAcres. And today my WIP Wednesday post is on Thursday because, well, the Eeyore mask will tell you (keep reading). In the meantime, here’s a look at some other WIP that are going on in here in my studio, as well as some notes, tidbits, and some other artist’s work you may have missed. Keep reading…

Into the Forest Submission by KatersAcres

Into the Forest Submission by Katie Oskin

Into the Forest is an international collaboration of polymer artists and enthusiasts. It is inspired by the high altitude aspen groves in the Rocky Mountains. This project, Into the Forest is an evolving mixed media international installation from Laura Tabakman, Emily Squires Levine and Julie Eakes. The idea was to bring together as many polymer artisans as possible in a wide variety of ways. We were to imagine ourselves in a forest. See it in your mind: On the ground beneath a canopy of branches and leaves, unexpected life exists. We were asked to create pieces which will form its life elements. We will combine them into living colonies of varying shapes, colors and sizes. Here’s a look at what I created for Into the Forest.

The Year of Discovery at KatersAcres

… The Year of Discovery …

The Year of Discovery at KatersAcres

Have you ever sat back and wondered if you or your art is going in the right direction? Ever stopped and wondered if you are being true to your inner most self? This past fall as I spent over 30 days (on two separate occasions) hospitalized and I had a few of those inward moments. I spent a lot of time thinking about my sculpting and my art. Was my art true to myself? I had those thoughts and moments of self doubt. Was being true to my heart song? So as 2016 gave way to 2017, I knew the course was going to change, it was inevitable … 2017 was going to be a year of Discovery. My art was going to change, because I was changing.

Artistic Evolution:

Growing Up Parker

Parker - Handmade Polymer Clay Figurine by KatersAcres

When you begin a new craft or hobby your work is often in it’s “rough” stages. You begin simplistically. Simple shapes, patterns, and techniques. Parker is one such example. Parker was not the first thing I made with polymer clay, but he was the first character I created with a full story line, home to live in, back store, friends, and plenty of adventures to be had along the way. But there’s a funny thing that happens when you work in one area long enough. You find that eventually you end up “growing up Parker.”
