Bursting with Color- Spectrum at RAM
The lei was created in 1998 when Lindly was experimenting with inclusions. Wax from crayon shavings were mixed into the polymer and melted off during baking. The residual pigment colored the translucent polymer in a mottled pattern. Color is a central element to all three of Lindly pieces in the show. Read more about her process in this PAA feature.
Pieces from Pier Voulkos, Dan Cormier and Jeff Dever are also part of the RAM show which focuses on works that use color as a defining principle in form and design. Read more and see the rest of the polymer works in the exhibit on the PolymerArtArchive.
Mike Buesseler Videos Now Available on the IPCA YouTube Channel
Tory made it a condition that there is to be no charge for the videos and Tonja has added a note to each one to that effect. They must also be freely available to all, not just our members, and we are very happy to agree to that. Enjoy watching a polymer master in action! Thank you very much Tonja and Tory.
