I would like to feature another fantastic clay artist on my blog today...Linda from NK Designs. She has an Etsy shop here and also a blog here.
How long have you been "playing with clay"?
I started using polymer clay about 8 years ago when I retired from Stony Brook Hospital, Long Island, New York. What started out as a hobby has become an obsession and I have clayed almost every day since then. I also teach polymer clay in the spring and fall in the Adult Education Department in Smithtown, New York.
Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration from other artists' work. I see something made so beautifully and I will try to put my own spin on it and change it up. Of course, most artists find inspiration in nature with colors and textures. I might see an interesting flower and try to duplicate it with a cane.
Where do you create?
I have a studio in my basement. My husband bought me a TV, two tables; one for clay and one for finishing with beads and findings. I love working there as I can leave a piece and come back to it later on. In other words, I don't have to clean up all the time. LOL.
What is the item that you have created that you love the most?
I don't have one particular item I like more than the others. Each piece I create is unique. I love all the different techniques and I am constantly creating new pendants.
I really love Linda's work, especially the wonderful ways she finishes her pieces with resin. Here are a couple of her amazing pieces.
Thanks so much Linda of NK Designs for letting me feature your work on my blog!
