Watching Pier Voulkos work with polymer clay was a sight to behold. You can capture a glimpse of those early days on the most recent post in the Polymer Art Archive where you’ll read about the early efforts of both Pier and Victoria Hughes.
I snapped these pictures at Pier’s class in 2001. She took slices from one simple cane and in a couple of minutes combined them in more ways than I imagined possible.
Her works from years ago are still fresh today and the picture of the shapes reminds me to push my ideas further.
