Kaiju Are Forever…

Meet Tuscon AZ artist, photographer, and jewelry designer SHAWN GORRITZ who makes GODZILLA necklaces and more! MAT spoke with Shawn about her work and inspiration making wearable pieces of Kaiju art and she mentioned, “My first sculpt is made with a blend of Super Sculpey Original and Super Sculpey Firm. It consistently keeps its shape and detail, but is easy to knead and mold. This is ideal for resin mixing and making small pieces.”
Speaking on the process of making the necklace pendant Shawn said, “The original sculpt took about 1.5 hours and I kept it as my master while the resin pour took approximately 24 hours to cure.” Later she indicated that molds are popped out into nickel-free, silver or brass bezels.

MAT: How long do you spend painting the pendants?

Shawn Gorritz: About 2-4 hours. I hand paint them using satin and metallic craft paints, and later I apply a a matte acrylic spray-varnish. Finally I hang them from matching silver or brass, nickel-free chains.

Shawn’s preferred artistic weapons of choice are pen and ink, laser cut jewelry and recently, polymer clay sculpture. She is inspired by Horror, SciFi, Comic themes, and especially GODZILLA, which she began a love affair with at the tender age of 5, around 1974-75 when she would sneak out of bed to watch the King of Monsters on television destroying Tokyo and battling the likes of MOTHRA, RODAN, GIGAN and KING GHIDORAH.
