This award winning Cloud, Rain and Trees by Virginia’s Wiwat Kamolpornwijit combines both more structured and more organic elements than the necklaces usually created by this environmental researcher turned polymer artist.
Wiwat had been a winner in the 2011 and 2013 Niche awards and a finalist in the Saul Bell Awards in 2011. He took the top 2015 Niche Award in the professional polymer clay category with this neckpiece.
The luscious color on his latest work on Facebook looks like another move from a limited palette to one with more echos of Thailand. Wiwat doesn’t give us many clues but you can sense that 2015 may be his year and there are changes ahead.
