Illinois’ Zuda Gay takes a botanical and sculptural approach to polymer clay. In our haste to make the clay do new tricks, we sometimes overlook its ability to be simply and delicately shaped.

Zuda says she creates flowers from clay because she cannot grow them any other way. I like her use of buttons as flower centers and her Victorian palette. She’s on Etsy and has a blog site too.

    PCD is one of the first sites I come to every morning when I am trying to get woke up for the day. I am now completely awake with the surprise of seeing my work featured!!! Thank you so much, I am very thrilled and humbled.

      ZulaGay’s polymer clay work is exquisite! There is a particular pendant from her shop (no, I’m not sharing which one-don’t want someone else to buy it first! /grin) that I’m hoping is not sold before I get paid.

        I recently purchased one of Zuda’s pendants, Mint Chocolate Garden…I can vouch for the fact that her pieces are even more interesting and lovable in person. The detail and use of color is phenom!

            She creates pieces as beautiful as her soul. I am so glad I found her.
