A self-taught creator, FunwithArtz discovered clay modelling nine years ago when she came across photos of Japanese mini clay food online. Struck by inspiration, she took the plunge scouring the web for clay modelling video tutorials, and even going so far as to ship her first batch of materials all the way from Japan.
Having previously worked with ceramics, her journey into clay modelling turned out to be much more malleable. And she began experimenting first with bread.

Now, FunwithArtz hosts workshops on regular basis. She aims to introduce others to the wonderful world of miniature food modelling. Her participants often greet her with a hint of incredulity as to how something so small could be possibly produced by the human hand.
