Over the next several weeks I will be all over the place–traveling, teaching, entertaining foreign (polymer) dignitaries, readying the family home for sale, and making the final move for the business at the end of it all, I needed to pull a few things off my plate during this period. Not doing the blog was […]

  I know I showed you a bit of the sample “Into the Forest” installation last week, but I didn’t get in this mosaic created by Julie Eakes for the exhibition that will be installed in November. I think Julie gets the prize for the most intense and biggest piece to go into the installation. […]

The art jewelry at these events is also a big draw. There is nothing quite like seeing masterful polymer work in person. Here is a gorgeous piece by Bonnie Bishoff.

It is really heart-warming how much these people share. There are also a lot of cool […]

You may have seen this in the newsletter that went out a day or so ago but I didn’t want anyone to miss out on the beautiful art work we were so lucky to get for the cover of the upcoming Spring issue, “Shape & Form”. Due to popular demand, we decided to do a […]

Donna let us in on her colored pencil experiments and her reasoning behind her approach. Although colored pencil on polymer is not new, it is always fascinating to […]
