Enviable Design Skills

I know very little about this talented artist. I believe her name is Ingrid and her native language appears to be German. I'm hoping that some of my international readers will see this and be able to give us a bit more information. I ran across Ingrid through a comment she left on one of my Flickr photos. Her profile on that site gives nothing away. Update: This talented artist is Ingrid Ulrich and she is from Germany. You can read the delightful comment she left by clicking on the comment link at the end of this entry.

I'm smitten with her unique designs and these extruded tubes that she arranges in totally brilliant ways. Seeing such fresh work is a great and inspiring way to start the week.

I hope you'll indulge me in a brief bit of shameless self-promotion today, too. After putting it off for a year or so, I've finally managed to put together a "kimcavender" shop in the vast wilderness of Etsy. I'll be listing more things in the coming weeks and maybe I'll even figure out how to fix that sucky banner I have up there now.

Hope your week gets off to a positive start!

Some more information on your featured artist: Yes, her name ist Ingrid Ulrich and she is - what else - member of our german guild. She really developed her own style over the last year. I hope to meet her in person someday:)

Looking forward to my earring set...can't wait;)

Hi, my name is Ingrid Ulrich, my nick name at Flickr is IngUl. It is a great honor for me to be mentioned in this blog. I got my inspiration for these works considerably from two persons. On the one hand this is Sarah Shriver whom I got to know personally at a workshop in june in Liechtenstein. On the other hand it is my daughter which had the basic idea for the second chain. I am fascinated by the material polymer clay. It livens up the fantasy and gives therapy to the soul, but it also makes addictive to more and more perfection.

Best regards,
Ingrid from Germany

Thank you Bettina! What would I do without you, my friend?

Ingrid, thank you so much for writing and sharing your beautiful work on Flickr. I can't wait to see where your fascination and love for polymer clay leads you next.

Carol, thank you so much for the good wishes! It's a bit complicated trying to find my way around but I'll eventually get the hang of it.
