Studio Wednesday


I first discovered polymer clay in the early 90s when I wanted to expand my bead collection for my jewelry making.  Over the years I’ve tried many different polymer techniques ranging from caning to faux stones to mokume gane.  With the exception of free-form mokume gane, none have resonated with my spirit like sculpting and carving polymer clay and glazing it with soft colors.
