Barbara Polinsky's Profile
Ever since I was a young girl, I have enjoyed creating three dimensional art from found objects - whatever is within reach. I’ve fashioned huge sculptures using empty soda cans and suspended them from a ceiling, made stylish outfits using scraps of fabric and a stapler (ouch!) and spent hours "baking" mud pies in my back yard. My mind and hands were always in motion and I was happiest when I was creating.........Some things never change.
After 2 degrees from FIT(both business, not design related) a happy marriage, 2 amazing kids and careers in fashion, sales, and lots of volunteer work, I find myself once again creating. I've graduated from mud to metal and I still love to get my hands dirty. There's nothing like experiencing the radiating warmth and mesmerizing glow of pure gold that second before it reaches its melting temperature. It's also a thrill watching ideas take form and products come to…

gold, silver, gems, crayons especially midnight blue, handmade paper, glitter, squishy clay that you can see your fingerprints in, popsicle sticks fudgesicle not creamsicle why would anyone choose a creamsicle over a fudgesicle now that I think about it grape popsicle sticks would be okay too, pipe cleaners the fancy fluffy kind in orange or yellow and googly eyes with sticky backs the plastic ones where the pupils get stuck in one place or only one eye moves so you have to shake the thing real hard or jump up and down with it and this doesnt help either it just stares up at you with its one good eye and you cant tell what the other eye is looking at so you start to feel so sad for your poor paper plate creature then you giggle and maybe even snort because you realize how silly you are being, I also like walnut raisin cream cheese
