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.
