Cavender’s polymer clay chips

West Virginia’s Kim Cavender was all set to debut these vibrant new polymer clay sea urchins at the Euro Clay Carnival in England. Family health matters took precedence at the last moment. Everything’s on the mend, read her blog for the whole story. Motherhood trumped art.

She played her cards right and sent the pile of sea urchin poker chips pictured here to England without her. Look at the new natural, woodsy and watery pieces she’s developed lately!

The good news is that she’s all prepared to teach her class at the Clay Carnival in Las Vegas in November. And speaking of being prepared…

You have 30 days to enter your work in the NPCG Progress and Possibilities international juried exhibition. The entry is online, no muss, no fuss, no excuses. Here are the exhibition guidelines, and here’s the entry link. This is a chance for the guild to demonstrate its vitality and for you to receive recognition for your work. Start planning now and have a great weekend.

      At least Kim will get a second chance to visit Europe next year as she has been selected as one of the Instructors for the Euro Clay Carnival France 2009. Website launch for this event is due in September 08…I’m busy working as fast as I can on it!

        Cynthia, thanks so much for the mention! This week has sure ended on a better note than it began. I appreciate you so much!

          My 13 year old daughter loves working with polymer clay. I am trying to identify a class she can take this summer to further her skills in working with polymer clay. We live in Vienna, Virginia. Do you have any suggestions for where I might find such a class? Thanks. Pam
