Clay Art and Craft Ideas Center

So you are at

Are you a clay artist? Cake artist? Home decorator? Jeweler? Parent who wants to keep the kids busy during school holidays? Sunday school teacher needs some craft ideas?

Welcome to my website!

Whoever or wherever you are, if you are clay art and craft lovers and looking for craft ideas, you are at the right place.

Like you, I called myself a clay lover.

I love the material because clay is a versatile medium to express my creativity. It doesn't really matter whether it is an air dry clay or oven baked. Clay is the most exciting art material and readily available for specialist modelers or kids to play with.

Why Clay Art & Craft?

Firstly, let's look at dictionary for the meaning of art and craft.

Art was defined as the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture.

And, craft is an activity involving skill in making things by hand.

To me, it's very clear that clay is one of the best materials to express our creative skill and imagination by hand to form 3 dimensional clay models or art pieces. It helps to bring out the artist and child in us.

You'll have fun exploring the wonderful world of clay art and creating models such as:
