Irma Gruenholz A model illustrator

September 14, 2012

Irma Gruenholz lives in Madrid and models her illustrative 3-D creations out of clay.

She has a good eye for portraying the essence of a scene and also great modelling skills to present her ideas to such a high level of finish.

There’s both humour and darkness to her work, as in the human ‘chick’ above and the evil child catcher below.

She has depicted famous works of art …

and tales of great adventure and everyday life. I love the decorative and textural swirls on grandma’s dress here.

It’s only when you see a breakdown of the elements that go into the construction of one of her pieces, can we start to realise just how much work is involved in each finished model.

Once an illustration is finished, it is photographed and delivered to clients in high resolution digital format. If the model needs a hard and rigid finish, she uses polymer clay.
Irma also prepares 3D models in polymer clay for customer presentations, prototypes and custom props. More info on her blog.
