Colorful Design Inspiration…

ms3I am so grateful for all of the opportunities that I have to see art jewelry at galleries, museums and home studios while I am travelling. Surprisingly enough, while I live in the Washington DC area, I rarely go to the museums here- but last year I did get to see the Helen Drutt collection at the Renwick Museum. Most intriguing to me was the work of Marjorie Schick- with her large, colorful sculptural paper mache forms. There is an interesting interview of her here and she was featured in the March 2009 issue of Art Jewelry Magazine .

msbookLast month I received a copy of her book as a birthday present = Sculpture to Wear …and am still revelling in all of the 200 plus pages of inspiration- via her forms, outrageous scale and wonderful use of bright saturated color. I can’t help thinkingĀ  ” this piece could provide an inspirational launching point for further explorations in conjunction with my own color sensibilities and the possibilities of polymer clay.”

..and I wonder if she has ever worked with polymer clay?
