Hello and Welcome to my Blog ~ I love art of all kinds. Two of my favorites are polymer clay and paper art. I have shops on Etsy that feature both of my passions. I also love writing my blog and finding artists that have a passion for their craft and feature them. I hope your day is filled with sunshine, laughter and loads of creativity.

Fond Kitten Sculpture

A tender-hearted sculpture dedicated to the members of her family they love so dearly, and who love them unconditionally in return with such purity and simplicity--our pets.This 7 in. tall, 3 1/4 in. wide sculpture is crafted from polymer clay, over an armature of tin foil and wire, then painted in acrylic and oil. The glass eyes appear black at first glance, but certain lighting reveals a soft turquoise hue.

Made from black polymer clay, this heart pendant has got a lot going on! The steampunk parts are clock works, clay swirls and dots highlighted with a more silvery purple. Also some non-tarnish silver wire helping to hold the watch parts. The color was rubbed on with the pearl powders! It's been given a coat of polyurethane.

Flowerbloomerz  
Jenifer Thoem from Richmond VA ~ she opened her Etsy Shop in April 2011
You can visit her ship at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/flowerbloomerz?ref=seller_info
 
She was drawn to the fact that clay could be anything, limited only by her imagination…. and the boundaries that the clay set for her. She was influenced by the Southern folk artists of her area, and intrigued by traditional African masks and sculptures.She throws each Flower Bloomerz pot on the wheel and hand builds the face. She uses high fire stoneware clay that is fired over 2200 degrees, allowing them to live outside. Each one is made by Jenifer, and is signed and dated on the back.

Kissing FlowerbloomerZ by flowerbloomerz

Each clay Flower Bloomerz® is designed to give personality to any plant or flower you own. They come in two styles; kissing and smiling. The bottomless design allows you to grow seasonal flowers without ever having to repot. You can use it to decorate a potted plant or simply slip the pot over a plant already growing from the ground. Each Flower Blommerz® is crafted from strong stoneware clay that provides years of outside use. Each one is a handmade original and is signed by the artist.
