MAKINS GALLERY

At least one or more Makins Products have been intergrated into the projects in the Makins Gallery. My grateful thanks to all of the wonderfully creative contributors featured.

A very special mention and thank you to Lex Sorrentino who has been a valued supporter and believer in Makins Products from the beginning. Lex has combined Makins Clay and Products with a variety of very unusual and interesting media - the results are spectacular. Lex teaches a range of creative crafts including Polymer Clay, Metal Clay, Doll Making and Paverpol.

Metal Clay has a unique certification program that includes Makins Clay - for details of the CCIP Certification - Click here.

LEX SORRENTINO



Lex has always had a preference for making unusual or "weird and wonderful" things.

The images below are examples of some of those "weird and wonderful" things. Lex has combined Makin's Clay® with various mediums including Sculpey Premo, Paverpol, Fabric, Organic matter and found objects. Lex has always been a big fan of Makin's Air Dry Clay® and recently started working with a liquified form of Makin's Air Dry Clay®. There are some beautiful examples of her work with the liquified clay below. If you would like to attend one of Lex's workshops, please email us.

This dynamic and exciting contemporary clay artist continues to push the boundaries of what is possible in the contemporary clay world. Lex welcomes commissioned work and has been asked to do a variety of projects including life sized sculptures. Lex recently completed the exquisite Griffin featured below. Please contact Lex if you are interested in commissioning her to create any custom made projects.
