"When I start to spin, I try to remember who I am and I go out to the horses or down to my studio and everything falls back into place," says Utah’s Judy Summer.

A full-time artist for 35 years, Judy can’t solder or do detailed jewelry work anymore. A car accident and an infection reduced her vision but frustration is something she shoves aside.

Decades ago she dreamed of horses. After a car accident in 2000 and therapeutic riding lessons, she decided it was time to get a horse of her own. The animals have taught her patience and inspired the nuances in her polymer clay sculptures. Her site loads slowly…perhaps to teach us patience too.

    I was so pleased to see Judy featured on the front page of the Salt Lake Tribune, as a featured artist at last weekends Park City Arts Festival. She’s an amazing lady and I so admire her….besides, she has the coolest workshop/studio of anyone I know!!
