Organic is the first in a series of project-based books from Tenth Muse who also publish the Polymer Journeys books and The Polymer Arts and The Polymer Studio magazines. The in-depth tutorials explore a wide range of organically inspired textures and forms and are geared for a mix of skill levels from the acquainted novice to the experienced artisan. It includes 16 tutorials by world-renowned artists Donna Greenberg, Christi Friesen, Eva Hašková, Anke Humpert, Debbie Crothers, Kim Cavender, Stephanie Kilgast, Chris Kapono, Staci Louise Smith, Nevenka Sabo, Adriana Allen, Fabiola Perez, Rebecca Thickbroom, Klavdija Kurent, Sage Bray and Dani Rapinett. The book is nicely presented with lots of clear step by step information and pictures and lots of inspirational images of finished projects and variations. As the tutorials are all by different people, they encompass a wide range of styles and techniques – there is something to appeal to everyone! There are sculpting projects, mokume gane projects, jewellery projects, home décor projects, mixed media projects and even some organic cane work. I haven’t had time to try out any of the projects yet but I have greatly enjoyed reading this book and I know when I do come to use it I will learn a lot of new skills and pick up lots of new tips! My personal polymer clay work tends to be geometric cane work so organic isn’t something I have much experience with but having seen the projects in this book I am inspired to explore organic!
