GlassAttic --polymer clay "encyclopedia"

Just ran across these fabulous miniature polymer clay clothes made by Donna Kato:
http://web.mac.com/donna_kato/Site/Page_1_-_Millefiori.html#101

One figure (a tiny mannequin, actually) has a striped and pleated 1940's-type blouse, black flared skirt and belt, and spotted neck scarf (mostly striped and bullseye cane slices, made into sheets).  
The the other figure has a South American pattern jacket and heavy scarf (mostly using the "ikat" caning technique, made into sheets).

(I'm assuming the mannequins are around 3-4" tall, and may also be made from polymer clay.)

Fun!

nougatgee, if you're interested, the info about mini clothing and clothing patterns would be mostly on these pages (...though other pages will have just examples among the regular links):
...Sculpting-Body > Clothing
...Sheets of Pattern
...Mixing Media > Fabric (that's mostly about using real fabric saturated with liquid clay or translucent clay though)

Oh, and the ikat pattern in particular would be on the main canes page:
...Canes_Instr.

You're most welcome, clayman  Grin

Actually almost everything Donna Kato has made is impressive.  She has her own style (clean, and mostly colorful with interesting shapes and patterns, these days), is inventive ("slice painting" technique, balloon pinch pots, various wrist cuffs/bangles including the new spinner ones, and more), productive (lots of classes--excellent and friendly teacher too, a whole line of polymer clay and tools, as well as just making her own things), etc.  She's moved through a lot of polymer clay techniques too over time --though sculpting hasn't been a major one, she's done that too (some of her beloved horses).

Check out her site(s) and the many other places where photos of her work are posted (often from classes, conferences, tv appearances, etc) from these links:

I saw them!  Those are so cool!  Thanks for the link Diane!

I've been posting a few myself.  Mostly in the miscellaneous section.  Not sure if you've seen them.  I couldn't put them in the polymer clay section anymore because there's no clay in them.
