Polymeri Online 19.11.09

I had a great week, worked continuesly in my studio on a big keychain order, a family from the states contacted me about a Bat-Mitzva they are doing on Hannukah, in Israel, they want to give each guest a personalized gift, it's such a pleasure and joy making these keychain! i am always thankful for people appreciating a unique handmade gift.

Mari kasurinen is an art student from Lahti, Finland. i found her in the new "1000 ideas for creative re-use" book i posted about few days ago and learned that she is working with super sculpey in her sculptings. Her known little ponies are changed, modified, re-sculpted into a theme (or a celebrity), they are truly amazing and some of them are even funny (check out her lady gaga pony & elvis presly pony in the photo).
