Laura Lloyd - Studio 17 — Foundry Art Centre Studio 17 About Me: My creativity springs from a sense of fascination with people and a delight in life.

Faces and color dominate both my oil painting and clay sculpture. In oils, I wield a palette of vivid colors to embody the spirit of the person and reveal her (or his) frame of mind in that exact moment.

Sculptures Embedded with Intricate Patterns Several amazing sculptures from Chihyun Shin’s recent exhibition at Gaain Gallery in Seoul. Shin’s objects are created from a delicate layer of interwoven patterns, the shark appears to be embedded with a tightly-knit school of fish, while the chicken, rabbit and person seem to be made of flowers and other plants. I was unable to reliably translate much more from the Korean sites I found these on, so head over to Art Hub and Dinonabi to see more.

marble magnets I finally gave in and made marble magnets. Not surprisingly they are quite fun, smooshing the glue out to make a perfect little magnified image is very satisfying. Here, in order of appearance, are the places I referenced: paper candy instructions with pictures (this is the first place I saw this project) dogmestic with instructions and pictures photogeek pictures ugly green chair cute ladybug magnets – pictures with packaging threads at Glitter:onetwothree I bought all of these supplies at Michael’s, including the glue I went back for since I got the wrong kind to start with.

This year the theme for their exhibition and sale is 'The International Year of Forests', which was chosen to coincide with the United Nations initiative of the same name.
