I have published several posts about one of my favorite local art programs, the Philadelphia Open Studio Tours (POST). But this year is the first time I have ever encountered polymer artists on the tour. My friends Patty Pickup and Terri Powell (ArtSci designs) joined together in West Philadelphia to showcase their work for this years’ Open Studio Tour West. They were the only polymer artists on the tour this year, but I am hoping this will change as more people start to recognize polymer as a serious art medium.
Patty has an incredible, huge studio on the third floor of her home. To see pictures of Terri’s studio, press here.
Patty’s latest work. Her color washed-pendants are very popular.
ArtSci designs yummy carved and backfilled bracelets look good enough to eat. I own a set of these and love wearing them. If you are interested in purchasing any of Terri’s work, you can contact her through her web site here. Patty does not have a web site yet, but I’m sure that’s only temporary.
