Spiesser’s cane critters

Sabine Spiesser from Melbourne calls herself a digital artist and she has only two pictures of polymer clay work on her Flickr site. But even from this small sampling you can tell that she’s unleashed her inner polymer artist.

Created for an Australian guild competition, the caterpillar was composed of cane ends. She credits Vancouver’s Wanda Shum as her inspiration. I’m hoping that Sabine’s cheery bugs will bring a smile to your face this Labor Day Monday.

I’m off to shop an art show and enjoy the bonus day of summer’s last long weekend. Thanks to Lorrene Davis for the link.

      Oh my gosh … Sabine’s pieces are fabulous! She evokes indigenous artists in Australia who paint on cloth. Her joyous voice in polymer clay is taking that inspiration to a whole new place.

      This is our third day of rain, rain, rain in Seattle. Thank you Cynthia and Sabine. I needed this. Sabine … more, please.

        Whow, thank you so much for featuring me. I am so over the moon and humbled.
        I create jewellery and just have not got to the stage of photographing anything. These critters are just pure fun and relaxation – clay doodles with scraps I can’t bear smooching up. I hope they inspire lots of others to play with their cane ends.

          cheers!

              Hey Sabine,

              That African, European, Australian influence certainly seems to work! 🙂
