Perfect Pairings :: Nan Smith

Nan Smith has taken on a year long challenge to make something in polymer clay each week. She shares one of her creations, a brooch inspired by the colors and the shapes in Hundertwasser's Imagine Tomorrow's World painting. The striations of the clay layers isolate the darker, more muted colors in the top of the painting and the swirl in copper mimics the large bulls-eye in the bottom of the painting.

Just a friendly reminder... We have a slightly new format for uploading your pictures for consideration for the Perfect Pairings each Wednesday, as well as the Monthly Challenge Recap post. We are now using Pinterest! You can find more details in this post about the exciting new changes, including a board devoted to art beads inspired by the monthly challenge! (Ooh! Look! More pretty beads to lust after!)
Pretty please make sure that you post a link in your Pinterest description so that I have someplace to attribute the picture to! And don't forget to tell us about those art beads!
Deadline to get your pictures posted to the Pinterest boards for the creation of the Monthly Challenge Recap post is Wednesday, January 28th! Let's start the new year off with a BANG!
