Oregon’s Kerri Pajutee’s extraordinary miniature mixed media sculptures popped up on a submissions call to the polymer community.
This piece is her version of the Bremen Town Musicians based on a fairy tale. Kerri created it for last fall’s Miniature Masterworks show.
Kerri is motivated by the desire to replicate the beauty and energy of animals in 1:12 scale. She developed a technique to combine polymer clay with layers of natural fibers: wool, alpaca, cashmere, and silk. The best place to see her process is on Facebook.
IPCA is looking to feature polymer hyperrealism in their upcoming publication. They used Kerri’s works as an example. The deadline is April 21 and an email to [email protected] will put you in the running.
She joins a select group of polymer artists in this premier crafts show. From over 1000 applicants,120 are chosen to participate. We’ve come a long way from hippie beads to welcomed participants in fine crafts. See more of Emily’s works on Flickr.
At StudioMojo, the weekend behind-the-scenes newsletter, we marvel at where artists are showing and where we may end up next. If your art needs a shot of inspiration and a push toward new possibilities, join us!
