Vera Thom Kleist makes a waffle weave for fall on PolymerClayDaily.com

Germany’s Vera Kleist Thom twirls extruded strings around a ball of clay and carves (or maybe she just textures) the surfaces so that they look woven. The result is a necklace with a thermal waffle weave accentuated by its muted winter colors.

Vera has perfected her woven methods and I’m only guessing about how she makes it happen. Go to her Flickr page to study how she applies similar strategies to vessels, disks, and other beads.

As the season changes, Vera shows us how to shift our palettes and our wardrobes.
