I don’t remember seeing this trio of polymer clay necklaces from Kathleen Dustin’s Pod Series the last time I posted about her work. The images might have been on her website when I wrote the previous post, but on that day the other pieces may have resonated more with me.
That’s not unusual – my posts often reflect my mood, my current interest in shape, textures, pattern or materials, trends I notice or a variety of other influences.

Every day I look at dozens of artist and gallery websites, online gallery postings, forum postings and Facebook photos (not on FB yet? Do join and send me a friend request – it is a great tool for networking). A constant happy parade of fine craft, work on the edge of becoming fine craft, emerging artist’s beginning ventures in the world of fine craft and student’s exciting first steps as artists.

The best way for you to catch my eye is to leave comments on this blog. I always click through to see the websites/work of everyone who leaves a comment. Another way to get noticed is to comment when the posts appear on Facebook, though I admit that I am more inclined to click through comments on DAMuse – if I don’t have a lot of time, DAMuse is always my first priority. My ‘favorites’ folder has almost seven thousand links in it and that number grows every day. I bookmark work that excites me, moves me, makes me think, makes me want to get into my studio. There is a lot of great work out there. I’m watching. Really, I am. And I’m writing as fast as I can!
Back to Kathleen Dustin – she never disappoints as she continues to lead the way for all polymer clay artists. These pods are exquisite, don’t you agree?
