Abstract Embroideries Made with Colorful Polymer Clay


Clay embroidery by Justyna Wolodkiewicz

Here’s an inter­est­ing com­bi­na­tion: poly­mer (aka oven bake) clay and embroi­dery. Artist Justy­na Wolod­kiewicz has fused the two in her lat­est series of abstract hoop art. Full of col­or and tex­ture, these pieces use flat­tened pieces of clay with tiny holes poked in them, which are then attached to fab­ric. The result is a rich jux­ta­po­si­tion between the smooth­ness of the clay with the fuzzi­ness of the thread.

This clay embroi­dery rep­re­sents a new path for Justy­na, who has pre­vi­ous­ly made elab­o­rate poly­mer clay clocks. You can find it all in her Etsy shop.
