Polymer Clay Extravaganza

Beauty in Polymer Clay Art
Polymer clay got it’s start as an art medium in the 1960’s, while it was developed in the 1940’s during WWII. While it has slowly picked up steam amongst the United States population as a versatile & enjoyable art form and craft medium, those on the creative force are those artists in Europe, where polymer clay is seen as an art-form and less as a child’s play medium. Artists all over the world are working hard to spread the word about polymer clay.
Why Polymer Clay Art?
Here, at Kater’s Acres, I do mostly polymer clay art scenes and sculptures. I use Parker as the centerpiece for most of those scenes. I do many other types of things with polymer clay that are not listed in my store: millifiori canes, beads, pendants, pens, and so much more. If you haven’t already noticed, I am on a mission: to get the knowledge, love, and widespread adaptability of polymer clay to the creative world.
I scoured Flickr to find some creative, colorful, and beautiful examples of polymer clay art. Flickr is a great place to find photographs of other artist’s creations. Everything from polymer clay jewelry, knick knacks, beads, sculptures, mounted pieces, canes, and even photo tutorials. Here are my picks for today. You can click on each image to be taken directly to the user’s flickr page, where more of their fantastic artwork can be seen. To each of the artist’s featured here today, your polymer clay work is gorgeous! Happy claying.
