Way back when…actually 1991 I made my first sushi platter using polymer clay. The sizing was a little exaggerated= 125% of what would be the usual size of each of the elements. My father actually took it with him to his favorite sushi restaurant to the amazement of the sushi chef. Each color was carefully replicated, it took a few trys to get the wasabi right and I finally settled on a mokume gane blend from magenta to golden yellow to capture the glistening magic of the shrimp. Looking back, what amazes me,still, is that each and every piece of rice was hand rolled using translucent clay.
One of my favorite color blogs is COLOURlovers a color + design community that enjoys over 600,00 visits a month. Recently cococello posted after compiling 130 color palettes inspired by sushi. Inspiring to say the least…. perhaps you would enjoy a sushi inspired polymer clay clock ny Noriko Kuwabara or a a sushi platter pendant by Tatsuko ? There is an abundance of sushi inspired polymer clay, after all the basics of cane construction are very similar to the construction of a sushi roll. And, besides, the colors are luscious, vibrant and inspirational.
