Stephanie Kilgast, Polymer Clay Ode to Life

  

   In this blog, we will introduce a polymer clay artist from France, Stephanie Kilgast

   Her surrealist clay sculptures are subject to her mood. Maybe she will show you a warm-hearted food this time, but the next second it would be a disgusting beetle. She will make polymer clay sculptures for dead creatures as well as create beautiful landscape modelling clay. Theme of her work would be vary, but her love for life is never ending.

 As she said on her website,  “My work is an ode to life, where plants and fungi meet insects, animals and minerals. These encounters are growing in a colorful swirl of diversity, and the erratic growth develops on found objects, in a dialogue between humanity and nature.”

 With a strong penchant for colors and abstract painting, her work focuses on the subtle balance of colors. In her early works, sculpting in miniature is a daily challenge that she enjoys and the small scale gives her the opportunity to question what we see and think we see. Choosing food to replicate in miniature is to emphasize the instinctive need of sustenance, but also the pleasure which lies in eating. Of course, the variation in color and shades that can be found in food are a never-ending inspiration to her.

Sometimes tin cans, jam jars, and old cameras would be embellished by Kilgast with vibrant amalgamations of coral-like growths. Mushrooms, crystals, beetles, and abstract forms sprout from the everyday objects that Kilgast sources from thrift stores and trash cans.These tiny stuffs can be found in our life, turns out to be the best polymer clay arts of her work.
