Art by Amy Christie

Hello friends!! I know it’s been a very long time. I get updates from the art by amy christie Facebook page that I haven’t updated in forever. Each time I get one I want to shake it and say, “I know!!!!” Making art with polymer clay is often on my mind but it just doesn’t fit in my life at this time. I have two small children who keep life very exciting and busy plus I have my DIY, recipe, home life blog, this heart of mine, to keep up. Doing projects and posts for that site is much more conducive for this time in my life – hodge podge work moments, unpredictable days, varying schedules – than artwork but I’m hopeful that someday I will have a schedule that works with creating art work.

I still love working with polymer clay! It continues to be one of my favorite mediums to work in. So while I don’t have new pieces to share, here are a few links to other polymer clay projects I’ve done.

Have a wonderful day!

 

I love spray paint. I like walking the aisle in the hardware store and gazing at all the hues and dreaming of all the things I could revive with a new color coat.

But why revive when you can make new?

Right now, I’m interested in showing movement in my work. The point of impact and the subsequent falling out. I like the life it shows.

Take care.

There is a lot going on in this piece. It’s been hanging in my home for two years and every time I look at it, something else catches my eye. Again, so much of its texture and mixed media-ness is lost in a 2-D image. So take my word for it, it’s definite eye candy.

Take care.

I liked this piece so much, I made two.

I made all of floret bowls about a two years ago. But after I made them, I didn’t know what to do with them, how to arrange them. So they sat in a box. I would pull them out now and then to mess with different arrangements but nothing stuck.

I don’t remember how I settled on the tree form, I think my brain was on overload at the time. I like the chalkboard-like tree doodle and, if you’ve seen any of my other work, the florets make me happy.

I wish I had the know-how to make a 3-D computer screen. I think my work is much better viewed in person. But since we just have images, here are a few close-ups.

Take care.

64 Florets
polymer clay, inks, wire
2′ x 2′

Being an artist requires some insanity, I think. It’s a little insane to make 192 bowl shaped pieces, plus a few more for good measure.

It’s a little more insane to hand-ink each and every one. On both the front and the back side.

Then there are the 64 floret-center balls, also hand-inked and then each wrapped with wired and threaded through a three-stack and through the substrate of the piece.

But the insanity doesn’t stop there. On the backside, there are 64 tiny nails in which the threaded wire is wrapped on to to keep them in place.

I have to say – insanity looks good.

Take care.
