Raquel’s  extensive travels have influenced her artistry, making it fresh and constantly evolving.  She tells The Rickie Report, “I found sculptures irresistible to the touch and started exploring this medium expressing my creativity and spontaneity in various materials. The sinuous curves and bright colors capture the viewers imagination offering a respite from the daily routine”.  

 

 

 

She goes on to say, “When I work with stone, I feel the inner essence that seeks to be revealed, it is as if ‘voices of the stone’ are guiding my hands.”  Raquel enjoys working in an array of materials such as acrylics, aluminum, ceramics, porcelain and PVC.   Raquel is a member of the Broward Art Guild, Ceramic League of Miami, NAWA, and 2+3 The Artists Organization.

“Creative Spirit” Hand made polymer clay flowers 

by Lori Axelrod

As Lori expresses, “I love exploring new color palettes, and I hope that others will experience the same delight that I get when they see my work!  It is my connection with color and pattern that drew me to polymer clay as the perfect medium for my creative outlet. It is the intensely saturated colors and the details that I can achieve with polymer clay, combined with the wonderful tactile experience of the clay that has me hooked”.

Lori started to experiment with all of the mixed media products and incorporated the polymer clay with the mixed media.  There are no boundaries or limits to what additional items you choose to incorporate into the polymer clay to tell your story.

Lori tells us, ” I use the polymer clay flowers and fiber as my focal point which adds the dreamy iridescence near the center of the flowers. I then layer with gauze, gelato pens, acrylic paint, stamped images, pigment ink, embossing powder and additional mixed media. I’m always challenging myself and experimenting with new techniques and styles. Polymer Clay has allowed me to find the creative spirit within. My drive to create is fierce and strong as I passionately put my heart into all of the art I create”.

Lori Axelrod Teaches Polymer Workshops At Bootz Culture Camp

Lori Axelrod spends most of her day working in the technology field, but once she is ready to create, Polymer Clay has become her go-to medium. Polymer clay is plastic, but until it is cured, it is a very malleable plastic.  Lori uses polymer clay as only part of her mixed media approach.  The layers and intricacies you see in her jewelry are not painted! Each color, dot and line is a different color of the clay she manipulates and forms.  Lori will be offering  a 6 week course at Bootz Culture Camp. Supplies and baking are included! The Rickie Report shares the details and urges you to sign up quickly, as the Opening Workshop begins Nov. 2nd!

Polymer Clay, Multi-colored pins/pendants by Lori Axelrod

 

 

Artists and hobbyists alike love polymer clay for its brilliant colors, its ease of use, and the incredible range of possibilities it offers. The clay can be formed into any shape imaginable-from detailed miniatures for doll houses, to striking vessels and wall hangings, to beads of every description.

 

 

 

Lori Axelrod tell The Rickie Report, “There are no boundaries, no limit to what you can use to tell your story. I used the polymer clay flowers and fiber as my focal point and then I layered with gauze, gelato pens, acrylic paint, stamped images, pigment ink, embossing powder and probably some additional media”.

Polymer clay is essentially PVC, polyvinyl chloride. It is plastic, but until it is cured, it is a very malleable plastic. It can be shaped and reshaped a multitude of times without deterioration. As long as it is stored away from excessive heat and direct sunlight, polymer clay can sit unused for years and still be workable (though it may require softening additives if left for very long).
Unlike earthen clay, it doesn’t have to be fired in a kiln, nor will it dry out at room temperature, like other clays will do. Polymer clay cures at significantly lower temperatures than earthen clays, so it can be easily hardened in a home oven or toaster oven. (In fact, the high temperatures in a kiln would ruin polymer clay and release potentially dangerous fumes.) Though it varies slightly by brand, most polymer clay must be cured at 265°F to 275°F (129°C to 135°C) for at least 15 minutes per ¼ inch (6mm) of thickness.

Polymer clay is available in a variety of brands (each with its own characteristics) and a rainbow of colors. There are several specialty clays, as well, including liquid clays. Different brands of clays can be mixed together to create a limitless palette of colors.

 

 

 

 
Lori was born and raised in South Florida and has found her creative spirit and voice thru Polymer Clay. As her children grew up and went off to college she found that she had some time and energy for herself.  She shares, “I started to read magazines, poked around the internet and then I went to the craft store and bought some colored pencils and paper. Next I started to sign up for local workshops and classes. But I still couldn’t find the media that caught me. Somehow or another I found polymer clay and bought a few bars. That was it, I was hooked, I finally found my media to work in! Finding my artistic voice however, came much later… I look back at those beginning pieces and I smile at how much my art has developed. I’ve learned so much from the many artists who have shared their talent and knowledge”.

Lori tells The Rickie Report, “My weekdays are spent working in a technical field so it is in my  free time that my imagination is given full reign. I love exploring new color palettes, but usually find myself going back to the colors that speak to me. I hope that others will experience the same delight that I get when they see my work.  My polymer clay canes are created by combining custom made colors and shaping them into sheets or rods of clay to make patterns or images. When the cane is sliced, the image or pattern is revealed and it is such a pleasant surprise”.

 

 

 

 

 

Lori explains, “It is my connection with color and pattern that drew me to polymer clay as the perfect medium for my creative outlet. The intensely saturated colors and the details that I can achieve with polymer clay, combined with the wonderful tactile experience of the clay has me hooked”.

“I started to experiment with all of the mixed media products that I was reading about and found my rhythm by telling myself to conquer my apprehensions and doubts and allocate lots of time to play.  I love mixed media because there are no boundaries, no limit to what you can use to tell your story. I used the polymer clay flowers and fiber as my focal point and then layered with gauze, gelato pens, acrylic paint, stamped images, pigment ink, embossing powder and probably some additional media. There are pieces of fiber which adds the dreamy iridescence near the center of the flowers”.
