Perusing the markets on the French Mediterranean this summer I was struck by some simple glass pendants where the craftsman twisted his glass shape into the 3rd dimension creating a sculptural form. Here I took a piece of textured polymer and twisted it over dowel and pens before baking it. I then painted it with iridescent micas. A strong shape softened by gentle colours.
This handcrafted polymer pendant is on buna cord. Roughly 9cm by 4cm it extends up to about 66cm. The toggle fitting is a 1.6cm diameter bead in iridescent gold.
