Creator of tiny and shiny things
Hi! I'm Funlola Coker. I'm a Polymer Clay lover and Metalsmith. I'm originally from Lagos, Nigeria. I currently live in Memphis, Tennessee. I love to travel, eat and create.
I started making miniatures because of the need to work with my hands. I enjoy the challenges that come with achieving intricate detail on such a small scale. The process makes sense to me and allows me to make sense of everything around me. It allows me to enter a space where I'm not thinking of anything else but shapes, form and colour. That feeling opens up another space for creativity where I'm inspired to work on new projects. Miniatures amaze me. They carry such wonder despite their size.
My new work combines my love for sculpting miniatures and metalwork. This summer, I am launching a collection of succulents incorporated into my handmade brass jewelry. These designs are based on North African motifs and simplified to highlight the sculpted succulents. I am excited to share this new collection with my customers and reach an even wider audience.
