Planting bits of clay

Eva Thissen captures Saturday on a bead on

Germany’s Eva Thissen says that she doesn’t work as intensively with polymer these days but she still enjoys it immensely. Her current crop of minutely appliqued beads has already sold on Etsy after only days. 

Eva used to create narratives around a single character. Now her stories are bigger and focused on groups as in this community garden, part of her Saturday series.

It’s hard to imagine working this small. A needle, good eyes, and steady hands are the only tools required.
