The Ties that Bind: Meredith Dittmar

December 2nd, 2009 · 3 Comments

I swear there are so many super-talented artists selling affordable art ! Even when I have less time to “discover” artists, I still find many more than I have time to feature!

I read about Meredith Dittmar on FF and had to share her stunning, unusual work in polymer clay. Meredith’s work is rooted in the idea that we are all connected to the world around us, to nature, other living creatures, and the intangible things that transcend the physical.

“Dittmars human-animal-plant-energy amalgams contain threads of common elements and colors to express deep levels of union across themes of biology, technology, and consciousness.” You can read more here.

Much of Dittmar’s work is available on her website. See below for some of my favorites. Dittmar also sells quirky clay figures she calls “my guys” ($15-20) which would make a really fun gift!
