Laura Borealis Art

Laura Burlis has lived in the Powderhorn area for 28 years. She works in mixed media with polymer clay and found object assemblage, creating switchplates, sculptures, and low relief wall art. Many viewers assume that the polymer clay pieces are painted, but all the colors are polymer clay, cutting and assembling the clay like a mosaic. She distills a lifetime of observing nature and landscape into these miniature worlds, and incorporates natural and recycled objects.
