Celine Charuau’s polymer Cathedral Flower brooch is very understated for the usually flamboyant Gris Bleu. The stepped, layered, dimensional cutouts immediately put the viewer in mind of a cathedral window. Delicate, simple and amazing!

On closer inspection, you can see how Celine used simple graduated cutters to achieve this brilliant effect. Then take a look at the snowflakes from Camille Young (and closeup here) that were featured more than a year ago.

Are you using your humble clay cutters to their full potential?

        Lisa – You’re right, I should have explained. Check out Kemper cutters, canape cutters, cookie cutters. Polymer artists will use most anything. Google Kemper cutters and you’ll see what I mean. Thanks for the nudge.

        Celine’s work is so innovative, and shows great versatility. I’m always thrilled to see new work by Celine…definitely one of my favorite Polymer Clay Artist. Always so creative and impeccably executed. The Cathedral flower is stunning.
