Bloody, icky polymer

How many polymer clay artists do you know who have a line of bloody icky dolls? Canadian Jade Perez’ creepy doll art site is full of posable characters which are built over wire armatures.

Somehow Perez is able to translate sinister into something interesting and fun. I have no vocabulary for this genre so you’ll have to decide for yourself.

Here’s her blog, her website and her Etsy store. Just in time for Halloween.

    Vocabulary suggestion: “Tim Burton” with rough edges!

      Sherry, I was thinking the same thing. Tim Burton but even more, well, demented I guess. And I love Tim Burton.

        Interesting. However, bloody icky dolls have there place in bloody, icky genres…there are always people who appreciate anything an artist can do. I’ve always been a proponent of being able to do just about anything with polymer clay….guess this is just one of the things you can do!!!! Not my thing, but I do thank you so much for bringing this to our attention!

          Jade Perez is one of my favorite artists and I’ve been drooling over her work both on deviantArt and her Etsy store. Thanks so much for featuring her. All her sculptures are so detailed, she packs them well and sends them off to you promptly. (Great prices too!)

            Maybe I missed this or Perhaps I forgot about it over time. I love creepy dolls! I don’t love creepy people! I make dead dolls (Dia de los Muertos aka Day of the Dead). For me it is part of my culture and not creepy or in the horror genre at all. Sometimes there is a little blood but not usually. Our imagery is sacred and spiritual rather than scary. Although it has been greatly appropriated as such.
