Repurposed Art

Finding people who are repurposing objects in interesting ways is such fun. David Mach is making some amazing sculptures using repurposed materials. Can you guess what material was used to make this Giant Gorilla?

Believe it or not, the entire Gorilla has been created from coat hangers.

Translucent Polymer Beads

There are so many effects that can be achieved with translucent polymer clay. I have a lot of fun working with it. Here are a couple examples of necklaces I recently made from beads that combined  translucent clay, inks and stamps. I generally don't make beaded necklaces because they take so long to make and string. The stringing part is particularly tedious. I started to make some beads and actually liked them, so kept going until the clay ran out. Needless to say, there won't be more of these any time soon, but it was a good exercise in patience and the results are satisfying.
