Ehmeier designs with scraps

When you look through Eva Ehmeier’s (Hoedlgut) photos, you’ll note that her most carefree and attention-grabbing designs are made from what she calls “scrap” polymer clay.

She carved and combined this series of pastel polymer circles into linked pendants that look perfect for spring.

It’s a good reminder that when we stop seeing the material as precious and the project as important, we often free ourselves to do our best work. Enjoy Eva’s “scraps.”

        Hello!
        I love Eva’s design, i’m happy to see it by here!
        For me it features well european minimalist design.
        This quite particular aspect of the cut clay reminds me the work of Quercus Silver who works another resin but in which the design is very rich and with the new group of flickr ” Ring a day” it is a pleasure to see what she can invent.

          I really like these! They’re simple, elegant, and the colors make me yearn for spring. It’s also pretty cool that she gave them a faceted texture instead of smooth.
