Jensen’s shabby chic polymer miniatures

My journey with polymer clay began when my daughter and I furnished her dollhouse nearly twenty years ago. I’d almost forgotten how enchanting making those little furnishings and food can be until I began clicking through the CDHM Miniature site. I was drawn in by their January featured artist, Cristel Jensen from Norway. (Scroll way down her page to see all the images.)

Cristel specializes in polymer clay food and small interiors. ” I prefer a ‘worn vintage’ look and like to give things a shabby feel as a finishing touch,” she said. The Ralph Lauren-inspired chair above is polymer.

Making 1/12″ size dioramas look real and inviting is no small feat.

      This is cute squared!
      I sat next to Christel at Louise Fischer Cozzi’s class in Stresa, Italy, but at the time I didn’t know about the talent behind that pretty face!

                How lovely to see Cristel’s work featured on Polymer Clay Daily. It couldn’t happen to a nicer, more talented person.
                And it’s so nice to hear that Mary Tempesta reads this column too. Hi!
