céline charuau’s polymer and silver jewelry

I first became aware of France’s Céline Charuau in early 2009 when she created a brooch inspired by a DAM post about Jen Stark’s paper sculpture.


Small Rattle, polymer clay, oxidized sterling silver

A recent visit to her blog confirmed that Charuau’s command of the materials is maturing at a rapid pace.  Her current body of work combines polymer and oxidized sterling silver in ways that celebrate each medium.  Bookmark her site –  I think  Céline Charuau is one to watch.

Read more about Charuau, including which jewelry artist influenced her metal work, on Polymer Clay Daily.

Thanks to Ronna Sarvas Weltman for refreshing my memory.

gosia’s polymer portraits and boxes

Illustrations, three dimensional polymer clay portraits and a charming array of polymer jewelry boxes make up the portfolio of Toronto artist Gosia.

The young artist, who was born in Poland, has lived in Canada since she was 12 years old and she has been making art almost as long.  There is a certain quiet calm that emanates from art that captures the closed eyes of a sleeping figure.  Shhhhh….

nancy calef’s peoplescapes

Multi-media artist Nancy Calef takes two dimensional art to the third dimension by slashing the plane of painted canvas and adding sculpture and applied objects.


Out To Lunch, oil, sculpture, fabric, paper, found objects on canvas, 30″ x 40″

Sculpting high relief faces and other details on her Peoplescapes allows Calef to literally add depth to the characters she paints as she addresses cultural, political and spiritual issues facing society today. The last image on this post gives you an idea of scale – I wonder if she is using polymer clay or an air dry clay for the sculpts?

Check, Please, oil, sculpture, fabric, found objects, jewelry on canvas 36″ x 36″

“By juxtaposing people in recognizable places and situations, each painting weaves together a story about contemporary life, filled with layers of detail, symbolism and humor.” Nancy Calef

Live Show, oil, sculpture, fabric, found objects, leather on canvas 24″ x 36″
