The Manabu Ito site (Clay Work Technique) is rich not only with polymer clay illustrations and sculptures but with links to lots of other Japanese artists who work in a similar vein.

The pieces are amazingly detailed and stylized. There’s even a video showing the artist at work and a peek at his workspace. I wish I knew some Japanese so that I could understand more about his extensive sneaker collection.

If the language is garbled (I’m not even sure about his name), it’s because I picked up this Japanese link via the Kiwi site in Belgium. There’s plenty here to keep you entertained all weekend.
