Polymer clay pushes all kinds of boundaries! These exotic bird pins came all the way from New Zealand, from a shop of Wilma Birdstock.
Wilma says: ”I live near the bush in New Zealand and make work which reflects my interest in the natural world, especially birds. I am particularly interested in the ways we use animal imagery to shape our identities. My bird necklaces are both a celebration of this relationship and a reminder of how destructive is our need to possess and collect. “
I think birds are a perfect subject for a polymer clay artist. They come in so many different shapes and colors, that you really need a material with endless possibilities, such as polymer clay, to depict all their beauty.
