As a medium, clay has been used to create art for almost as long as man has been making art. However, the work of Washinton DC-based illustrator Joseph Barbaccia stands out in its use of the medium because Barbaccia doesn’t use clay the same way everyone else does.

Instead of carving a figure from a block, the artist, who was Born and raised in Philadelphia and studied at the Tyler School of Art, rolls pieces of different color polymer clay into thin strands and then lays each one down to create a complete work of art. The resulting work is vibrant, and full of color and texture.
