We shout when we really want someone to hear what we have to say. “Shout” celebrates works of polymer art where the artist’s voice is clear and unique.



Claire Maunsell
3 Simple Hollow Bracelets
Polymer, acrylic paint, acrylic sealant
Pink with holes, 95 X 83 X 16 mm
Teal with purple, striped, 90 X 70 X 16 mm
Painted landscape, 85 X 74 X 16 mm

These bracelets are the results of my latest experiments with hollow forms generally. Also, of course, my general obsession with surface decoration that is painterly and satisfying to me. These are eminently wearable, being lightweight and easy to roll on to your wrist with the slightly distorted circle form. Although the surface decoration is very different in each bracelet, the colors unify the group for me.







Christelle van Lingen
Fantasy Flower
Polymer clay and gold filled wire
72x44x51mm.

Fantasy flower came to me in a dream…. I did not know how I was going to assemble the bead, but as I worked the colors, design and assembly just came together in a way I did not plan or foresee.



Christelle van Lingen
Roots Cuff
Polymer clay on aluminum cuff blank
60x70x45mm

I made Roots cuff to remind me of where I come from – Africa. The earthy designs and natural feel of the piece reflects my homeland and its people in every way.







Christine Dumont
Volcano Ring
Polymer clay, pigments, feather, sterling silver.
60 x 43 x 43mm



Christine Dumont
Flock of Trumbas
Polymer clay, pigments, oxidised silver cable, nylon-coated steel cable
33 x 35 x 460mm



Christine Dumont
Saturnia
Polymer clay, pigments
15 x 55 x 57mm

All three pieces are part of my continuing exploration of working with three-dimensional structures in polymer clay.







Janice Abarbanel
Round Lentils
Polymer clay, paint
1 1/4" round lentils

Inspired by orange creamsicles – it’s always about the food!







Kathleen DeQuence Anderson
Plank Mask
Polymer, glass seed beads.
Central pendant measures 6 ¼” L x 1 3/8” W x ¼” D; necklace 19” L
Intrigued by Bwa plank masks from Burkina Faso W. Africa, I determined to create a series of neckpieces that capture their essence and meaning. This piece is reversible; both sides shown.



Kathleen DeQuence Anderson
Ashanti Samurai from HeartBox Series
Polymer clay
7”tall, 4 ¼’ wide 4” deep.

A friend shared with me images of various designs of Japanese warrior armor, which piqued my interest. Influenced by Africa and Japan this box is embedded with the Ashanti symbol “Akoben”, meaning to take action, while reflecting a samurai warrior’s armor design.

A thirteen-month walking pilgrimage I participated in retraced the history of slavery through the U.S., the Caribbean, West and South Africa and changed my life. Africa calls me to create from its spirit. This is what I “Shout” with my work.







Loretta Lam
Hot Fun in the Summertime
Polymer clay
8 inch strand

The play of color and line makes this piece lively and energetic.



Loretta Lam
In Our Florida Room
Polymer clay
7.5 inch strand

The hot colors I've been working with this year really hit the spot for customers and galleries alike. With the economy so slow to recover, this 'optimistic' palette works.







Laura Tabakman
Sluguish
Polymer clay, pins, silk, velvet and sewing thread.
14” x 38”x 3”

This piece was inspired by a series of photographs I took of milkweed pods. It developed into a creature eating its environment, transforming it into a new one.








Barb Fajardo
Bloom Necklace
Polymer Clay, acrylic paints, natural brass findings
Beads measure approx 1 ½” in diameter and ½” deep, necklace length 20 inches.








Bettina Welker
Hinged Bracelet
Polymer Clay, Acrylic Paint, Hinge
7.5 x 6.5 x 3 cm

I really like to make bangles but they‘re always so big if they have to fit over your hand, so I started to experiment with spring hinges instead of using elastic.



Bettina Welker
Flowers
Polymer Clay, Copper, Wire
4 x 3 x 2 cm

I always wanted to combine copper wire with polymer clay and this was my first shot.







Rachel Carren
Bonnard Three-Color Disk Necklace
Hand screened acrylic patterns on polymer. woven together with silk for optimum drape. Braided silk ties to close. Glass seed bead accents.

This large disk collar necklace has components woven together with silk so that it drapes much like fabric. Patterns and colors are inspired by the late 19th- early 20th century French painter Bonnard.



Rachel Carren
Hokusai Three-Layer Brooch
3.25” x 160; 1.40” x .25”

Variegated polymer with hand screened acrylic, ink transfer and over-printed patterning. Polymer edges with mica powder highlighting.

This brooch was inspired by late 18th-early 19th century Japanese artist Hokusai. Three layers of patterning; screened pigment, chemical transfer and hand made over print.


Decorative ornamentation and the innate harmony of geometry are the foundation of my work. I use a range of textile techniques such as screening, block printing and transfers to create patterning. My color palettes and choices of pattern are inspired by historical artists such as Hokusai, Winslow Homer and William Morris. Geometric form provides classical structure for my richly-adorned surfaces. I love the juxtaposition of my modern medium, polymer, with my historical references, thereby enabling the intersection of the past with the present.







Jess Guerrieri
Coral pendant
Polymer clay, carnelian, sterling silver, glass granules, resin
1” x .5” x .25”

Inspired by corals. A blue amebic form surrounded by contrasting red carnelian.







Pam Sanders
The Silence of Solitude
Polymer Clay, Copper Wire, Tubing, Rubber Cording
8 x 4 x 1/2 inches

The piece is about the quiet sanctuary of solitude where there is peace within oneself and all is right with the world.







Ronna Sarvas Weltman
Whisper
Polymer clay, copper wire, ink
2 x 12 cm


Although this exhibition is about shouts, I wanted to end it with a whisper. I call this technique “Vegan Gut” since it looks like gut but I use polymer clay instead. The writing on this vessel is very deliberate – it contains prayers for peace and reminders of gratitude –but the writing is purposely difficult to read … I call it enigmatic writing. The prayers are therefore whispered rather than shouted. But there are good times to shout too; yes?


Heartfelt thanks to all exhibit participants !
