Three polymer visionaries

Three little piggies went to market! And they did well at the annual ACREs wholesale show.

Kathryn Reid, Leslie Blackford and Doreen Gay- Kassel launched into the wholesale market, thanks to IPCA which sponsors a booth.

IPCA juries three polymer artists into the event each year. They share booth space, enter the wholesale marketplace and promote polymer clay…a win/win.

The pig is Doreen’s, the beads are Kathyn’s and this is my most recent acquisition from Leslie. Each of these artists has a distinct voice and a vision that inspires.

      I participated in the ACRE show this year as well, and I want to thank IPCA for giving me the ACRE of opportunity experience in 2008. 2 years ago I shared a booth with Sandra McCaw and Lindly Haunani, and I gained so much knowledge which prepared me for a very successful show this year. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to spend some time and talk with this years IPCA sponsored participants. All three ladies are wonderful artists and utterly delightful souls.
      Bravo !!

          Kathyrn Reid’s shapes are wonderful. They are simple – but combined with the other elements, they are evocative and beautiful.

            ACRE was such a wonderful opportunity for me and I am so grateful to have been invited to participate in the show with 2 fabulous and talented ladies, Doreen and Kathryn.
            It was such an honor the be there representing the IPCG and I really appreciate the ACRE team and the IPCG for sponsoring our booth at this event. I learned so much and could not be happier with the whole experience. ~Leslie
