Dora’s Tutorial – Building a Kaleidoscope Cane

Follow this link over to Dora’s Explorations for a great tutorial on putting together Kaleidoscope Canes.

Belgium Artist – Nathalie Tanghe

My pal Nathalie opened a new Etsy Shop Polymer Clay Box to sell her fabulous colorful kaleidoscope canes plus bead, buttons and jewelry. You should check it out. 🙂

Facebook Friends Feature Artist – Jackie Sieben

Jackie Sieben AKA the Pleasant Pheasant is quite the kaleidoscope caner 🙂 I just love her canes and want to share a few of her latest designs.

Jackie also makes wonderful pen and key ring sets

And take a gander at this beautiful Bottle of Hope she made for Lora

Jackie was a featured artist on the Soft Flex website back in Nov. ’09.

You can check out Jackie’s Flickr Gallery to see all her fabulous work
Also be sure to drop by her blog – The Pleasant Pheasant
Plus her Etsy shop 🙂

Artists That Inspire Me

When I feel muse-less I like to look around the internet for inspiration. There are so many amazing polymer clay artists out there that it’s not hard to find a way to lure my muse back home. Here are a few of the artists who get my creative juices flowing.

Elise Winters for her use of color
Elise Winters - Color
Kathleen Dustin for her imagination

Sarajane Helm for her canework and beads

Julie Picarello for her colorful Mokume Gane

Judy Dunn for her use of patterns and shapes

Jeffery Lloyd Dever for his funky designs

Karen Lewis for her canework and bead designs

Jana Robets Benzon for her kaleidoscope canes

Kim Cavender for her organic designs

Tory Hughes for her imitative techniques

I could go on like this all day, so I will stop. LOL As I said, these are just a handful of amazing artists that inspire me to continue claying and hopefully one day I will find my own special style like they have. Many thanks to them all. 🙂
