Jensen’s shabby chic polymer miniatures

My journey with polymer clay began when my daughter and I furnished her dollhouse nearly twenty years ago. I’d almost forgotten how enchanting making those little furnishings and food can be until I began clicking through the CDHM Miniature site. I was drawn in by their January featured artist, Cristel Jensen from Norway. (Scroll way down her page to see all the images.)

Cristel specializes in polymer clay food and small interiors. ” I prefer a ‘worn vintage’ look and like to give things a shabby feel as a finishing touch,” she said. The Ralph Lauren-inspired chair above is polymer.

Making 1/12″ size dioramas look real and inviting is no small feat.

Polymer for gamer girls

Gamer girls are showing their pride by wearing polymer clay miniatures of game-related paraphernalia, dispelling the idea that “girls don’t play video games.”

Playstation, XBox, IPod and Nintendo systems are all part of this geek identity art created by The Clay Collection. What better way to display one’s obsession? I like the punk feminist implications.
