Textural Sculptures Made From Strands Of Clay

The colorful works of Joseph Barbaccia have a delightfully textile quality about, looking like they’re made out of yarn with a texture similar to macramé,  but surprisingly these totally tubular sculptures are made out of polymer clay.

Joseph captures the likenesses of Charles Bukowski, a Poe inspired raven and everyone’s favorite neighbor Totoro with thin strands of colored clay, which he meticulously rolls out by hand then lays out in various colors to form sculptural 2D images infused with a sense of motion and writhing, squiggling life.

We previously featured a crayon self portrait created by Joseph here on Neatorama, and although he has shifted his style up quite a bit since then his new works are every bit as colorful as his crayon point portrait.
