Breathtaking Polymer Clay Creations

Clayworks by Kim Detmers on EtsyWhen I was in school, I took every pottery class I could get into (and a couple of them twice) because I loved sitting at the wheel. I found the process both creatively stimulating and yet extremely soothing. And, in my high school career, I made a LOT of vases, bowls, cups, mugs, plates, pedestals, candle holders and more on that wheel.

Yet, although I had (and have) a decent amount of talent with tossing clay, sculpting was never one of my talents and still isn't to this day.

That's not the case with today's featured artisan.

Clayworks by Kim Detmers on Etsy is filled with absolutely exquisite polymer clay pieces with the kind of detail that takes your breath away. There's fantasy fairy doors, beautiful butterflies and flowers so realistic you'll want to take a sniff of the petals.

Kim was once a "muralist" painter and some of the miniature "murals" she now creates in clay are just amazing. She has some decorative badge reels that are just downright inspiring to behold.

It's clear she's inspired by not just color but nature as well. In fact... I can imagine her spending hours in the garden staring at the flowers! How else could she make her clay ones so realistic?

Her shop offers a variety of items from hair accessories to badge reels, magnets, fairy portals, jewelry and more. There's lots to browse through and enjoy and more arrives nearly every day it seems! Each time I visit there's some new beauty waiting to stir a smile.
