Shape-shifting brooch

Garcia de Leaniz gathers crenulated polymer on PolymerClayDaily.com

This brooch is part of a new line from Spain’s Natalia Garcia de Leaniz. It’s slinky and wormy and makes you want to smile and run your fingers across the crenulated Skinner-blend surface.

Can’t you imagine bending the snakes into other shapes or making them into tube beads?

Natalia and Dani often come up with head-scratching shapes. What could she have used to make this one? We’ll have to watch (Flickr and Facebook) to learn more.

    This made my day! Thanks so much Cynthia for featuring my work here. 🙂
    This brooch is part of the series of new pieces I am working on, having so much fun playing with colors and the shapes.
    I will be teaching this technique at The Las Vegas Clay Carnival in October and also in Madrid in May 2018.
