As you know, we enjoy showcasing new polymer clay artists who might not be as well known as they should be, and we've done it again! George Estreich is a working industrial designer with a love for polymer clay, and who's talents are amazing! Let's meet George and see some of his work...
George Estreich is an industrial design graduate student at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. He has been a poly clay artist for over 10 years, and in that time has created sculptures for art galleries, major television advertising campaigns, private commission and product development.
Throughout his years as a poly clay artist George has amassed an arsenal of techniques and skills, almost entirely self-taught. George uses poly clay in so many different applications and with so many other materials, its often hard to determine where the poly clay begins and other materials end...and he likes it that way. "Polymer clay is a tool that is so often overlooked by my industrial design peers." George says, "With versatility often beyond mundane clays and contractor putties, polymer clay allows me to achieve artistic feats that seem amazing, but are only understood by the faithful polymer clay artists out there". George continues to be a cutting edge poly clay designer, pushing the boundaries and limitations of the medium with each new effort.
George Estreich's polymer clay work has been exhibited at:
The Art Director's Club in NYC, Shelter Rock Gallery (LI). He has been published online at Make:, Art Moco and other popular design websites.
