Wiwat Kamolpornwijit of Wiwat fashions jewelry using polymer clay, hand-fashioning each and every piece. The different colors within a piece stem from using different color clay, there is no painting involved. He shapes the clay into shapes inspired by nature and adds beads and silver, each piece divine in its design.

2014 Festival Spotlight: Wiwat Kamolpornwijit

Wiwat started creating his pieces of art for a fundraiser for his temple and discovered he had some serious talent in this field. He left his position as environmental researcher in Tennessee in 2007 to pursue jewelry making full-time.

 

So check out his booth not only to see whether it is true that because of his previous job as environmental researcher, he glows in the dark, but to see for yourself the intricacies, the sheer and stunning beauty of his work!
