Gone (Ice) Fishing….

Cynthia Toops, Beetlerama, 2009, neckpiece, polymer, upholstery cord

While I'm hibernating for the rest of January and February… here's some new images to keep you amused.  These two works by Cynthia Toops are

in an exhibiton called JuJu Magic opening on January 27 at Facere Jewelry Art Gallery in Seattle.

Cynthia Toops, Annelida, 2009, Brooch, sterling silver and polymer clay micro-mosaic. Sterling silver by Chuck Domitrovich.

I cannot remember a time in my life that I wasn't interested in looking at art, talking about art and the making of art. In 1990 I earned a Phd in art history at the University of Maryland. My first experiences with polymer clay were in 1992, but I consider my real work with the medium to date from 1999.
