Carol and Jean-Pierre Hsu of Berkeley Springs, Virginia (a couple of hours away from ShrineMont where the national guild holds its annual retreat) work in aluminum but as you can see their designs are particularly relevant right now.

I'm thinking of making myself a similar pair of earrings out of polymer clay. Their designs are instructional (yes, by all means, vote) and their colors inspirational. Must make these soon.


Queen of Halloween

Alli Amann wins hands down for the queen of polymer clay on Halloween. Don't go to her site unless you are truly in the mood. It's very scarey and very good.

I don't understand this genre but I do very much admire it. Amann has degrees in fine arts and make-up and years of experience in a wide range of the arts.


Ponsawan Sila is from Thailand and Indianapolis. She has a charming web site and though she is relatively new to polymer she has a great touch and a nice sense of color.

A purse maker asked her to make buttons for her one-of-a-kind creations and she came up with the lovelies pictured here.

By experimenting with so many techniques, Ponsawan is bound to develop her style and find success. It'll be fun to watch her grow.

Local illustrator

We've got another polymer clay illustrator to add to our list and she's from my home town. Don't know how I missed her before.

Jeanette Canyon has created award-winning illustrations for three childrens books for Dawn Publications. Her work is complex and her abundant use of pattern, color and texture is engrossing. And I love seeing her at her work space.


Mightier than the sword

New York's Scot Connor takes covering his Bic seriously. He's a professional sculptor, teacher, illustrator who has gravitated to polymer clay.

Connor's work covers a wide range of subjects…from the Seven Deadly Sin series to human figures to creatures and cars. With such varied interests you know there are some stories behind this talent. I wish I knew more. Take a look and you'll see what I mean.
