Russia’s Ekaterina Zazybo makes polymer imitate ceramics, stone, enamels and other materials in new ways. Her pieces play with both roughness and precision.
The roughness comes from powders and texturing while the pigments and gilding on the tight designs are neatly rendered. The resulting effect is both ancient and other-worldly as her Cosmogony shop name suggests.
Her methods are mysterious and the Russian translation doesn’t help much. Thumb through her collection and tell me what you think.
Lennochka found her on Flickr here.
I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing problems with your site.
It looks like some of the written text on your content
are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let
me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a issue with
my browser because I’ve had this happen before. Many thanks
Cynthia, I’m sure I’m not the only one to say this, but I didn’t realize how much I missed you until you came back. PCD helps me get through the work day, thanks! And don’t leave us for that long again, please?!
Her work is very precise and well done. I like it a lot. I was wondering what she was using on the outside of her pieces, was it clay with a powder or paint or metal. I finally think I can say they are mostly clay. One or two is set in some kind of metal bezel. Does she have a website? I am going to echo Joan in her comments. Don’t leave us without our daily fix for so long again! I know you needed the break for yourself, but wow has PCD become a regular part of my day! Thanks for all you do for us and the polymer clay community.
Glad you’re back Cynthia! I missed you!
This site does feature some interesting pieces; some of which I found really fascinating. I like the way she “builds” pieces with layers and details.

Welcome Back Cynthia, I missed you too! This is sure some interesting work in PC. This is one of the reasons I love Polymer clay so much, it allows unfathomable and unlimited self expression.
Just a tip, I’m sure you know about it but maybe your readers don’t. Google has a page that you can use to translate from most languages to English or others. https://translate.google.com/ Or if you have Google Chrome as your browser when you go to a page that is not in your chosen language a dropdown box appears under the address field and asks you if you want to translate it. Or you can move your cursor over the icon next to the star on the far right side of the address field and it will say ‘translate this page’, just click on that. 🙂
I echo the sentiments about how much I missed PCD. It is the very first thing I look at each morning. Thank you for your wonderful website and the work you do for the PC Community.

Whoa! That is polymer clay? That is the most exciting polymer clay I have seen in a long time! I love the very tactile quality of the work. I want to feel it! I love the color palettes, very smooth. It looks at once ancient and modern. I would love to know more, take a class, learn some of these techniques. I have never seen anything like it! Enjoy the day. Erin
Cool beans! I’ve wanted to recreate the tiles from the Catalina tile works after a trip there years ago.

I think is something like this. http://polymerclayfimo.livejournal.com/1068524.html and to fill, liquid polymer clay with pearlex? I missed PCD too.
Catherine in the specialty artist working with ceramics, so she had a talent to imitate the texture of ceramic and polymer clay. Her flickr – https://www.flickr.com/photos/katya_bo/ shop with her ??work – http://www.livemaster.ru/??????????
As far as I know the lessons of his technique it does not, because it is constantly improving)
