Featured Artist: Alaska Hot Doggies

Jodi Hughes, proprietor of Alaskan Hot Doggies, is a life-long Alaskan who loves to marble anything she can get her hands on. She works as an Application Analyst from her home in Anchorage where she resides with her husband of 16 years, Shawn; extended non-family-family, Anthony; and two hot doggies.

The Alaska Hot Doggies boutique focuses on hand marbled items, including both textiles and paper. She also occasionally dabbles in jewelry. The shared motivation for all pieces is color. Depending on the time of year, the material may change but the focus will always be the same.... COLOR! COLOR!! COLOR!!

Another Plastic Bubble Bangle

Check out this bracelet. I love it!! It is a leftover piece of plastic that she tried to marble. When she wasn't satisfied with the marble process, she turned the heat gun to it. Instead of just bending, the plastic bubbled then molded to form the bracelet. There are remains of orange and blue paint from the marbling process.

Alaska Hot Doggies is a proud member of the Etsy Fiber Arts Street Team.
