It is my connection with color and pattern that drew me to polymer clay as the perfect medium for my creative outlet. The intensely saturated colors and the technical details that I can achieve with polymer clay, combined with the wonderful tactile experience of the clay that has me hooked!
My polymer clay canes are created by combining sheets or rods of clay to make patterns or images. When the cane is sliced, the image or pattern is revealed and it is such a pleasant surprise. I also love mixed media because there are no boundaries, no limit to what you can use to tell your story. I use polymer clay flowers as my focal point and then I layer with gauze, gelato pens, acrylic paint, fiber, stamped images, pigment ink, embossing powder and probably some additional media. I’m always challenging myself and experimenting with different ways to incorporate the polymer clay into mixed media.
Lori’s has her art pieces in stores in South Florida and Sedona Arizona and is currently a member of the South East Florida Polymer Clay Guild and the International Polymer Clay Guild.
This media has allowed me to find the creative spirit that lied within. A lot of time is spent finishing the pieces and I hope you enjoy my items as much as I enjoy making them.
