Scratching the surface

I’d be remiss not to mention a few more polymer “scribers” but this list is by no means comprehensive. Lately Rebecca Watkins with her Circus beads and Bettina Welker with her Sgraffito earrings have been at the forefront.

Looking back, names like Maggie Maggio, Luann Udell and Tory Hughes come to mind. And we haven’t even touched on the Zentangle folks yet!

I’ll be scribbling this weekend…taking notes in a class in Philadelphia.

With any luck we’ll get some pictures from the opening of the exciting Woman Creative – Art and Jewelry gallery in the Atlanta suburb of Buford, Georgia. Gallery manager Ellen Prophater has gathered an extensive exhibit of polymer work from artists across the country. The Polymer, From the Beginning exhibit opens this weekend. See video and teasers here.

    I’m in love with Rebecca’s new beads – she has taken a colour I’ve always had trouble with (pastel blue) and made it sing! Bettina’s earrings are fabulous too…

      Thanks for mentioning our event. We will definitely send you some pictures. We have over 90 polymer artists in our study collection and more than 30 artists in an ever-growing list of artists in the gallery, mostly polymer. Wish you were here for the fun!

        I love rebecca’s beads , her style is very recognizable . She was one of my first contacts on Flickr and i love seeing her beads pop up almost daily. Her mini tutorials on Flickr are worth checking out!!

          I really enjoyed browsing all the artists in todays post. I am especially excited about the Artist’s Gallery show this weekend. Can not be there but so glad to see polymer clay taken seriously as art!

            I love the soft muted colors. She posted some new beads on her blog and they’re a must see.
