Tonkotsu Ramen

Tonkotsu Ramen

This Ramen bowl is made entirely from polymer clay, from the bowl itself to the chopsticks and even the broth. (Though a little varnish was added for a "wet" finish.)

Tonkotsu Ramen

Tonkotsu Ramen

The pork belly slices, also called Chashu Pork, are braised, then marinated in in soy sauce, sake, and sugar.

Tonkotsu Ramen

Tonkotsu Ramen

The poached egg and the scallions were probably my favorite part of making the ramen bowls. The scallions were challenging; I had to make long, thin scallion beads and then delicately slice them like real scallions.

Spicy Shrimp Ramen

Spicy Shrimp Ramen

The tiny slices of hot chilis wre built similarly to the scallions. I made the shrimp and the steamed greens on a whim. This is more like what our homemade ramen looks like- busy with colorful ingredients and lots of greense!

Crazy Beads Closeup

These are strands from my Crazy Beads Line. While Working on other projects, I often find myself with scraps of beautiful color combos and patterns.I like to make use of these scraps by turning them into beads. Over time, the beads started to take over. Most bead artists want multiples of matching beads, so I had to find a way to use an eclectic mix of shapes and colors, so I started making Crazy Beads necklaces.
