Tofu Nut Loaf

Today's featured artist makes great polymer clay robots with actual hardware as body parts. It's a fun and unique design and I'm loving it.

1.What got you involved in Polymer Clay?
My friend Bethany makes beautiful polymer clay pendants, and I wanted to get in on the fun, basically. I made pendants and beads for a while, and then started making robots. The robots pretty much took over at that point.

2.What is your favorite thing to make? Why?
Robots. They have character.

3.What makes polymer clay a better fit for your products than other mediums?
It's fun stuff, inexpensive, and easy to work with. There are entirely too many color choices, and the pearl clays are perfect for robots.

4.What is your best advice for someone starting out in polymer clay?
Play and have fun. Try out different techniques. It stinks if you overcook it.

  1. I can see why you are loving your robots! They are adorable. The hardware idea is genius. I'm brand new to polymer. I just made a snake :D I loved your clay blog (so pretty) so I put it on my blogroll so people can admire your work. Thanks for the inspiration!
