Unique designs and patterns in polymer clay by Paoli, Wisconsin artist Laura Timmins. Colored and translucent polymer clays are blended and layered together to construct the intricate patterning in each piece. Patterns often contain gold or silver leaf and other inclusions embedded in translucent clay. Patterned clay pieces are combined, creating a rich polymer collage. The collage is then sculpted into shape, using an internal wire armature for support when needed, and cured with heat. The spiraling design seen in many of the pieces is created by twisting the polymer collage between two glass sheets prior to shaping and curing.
