European polymer in Atlantic City

Leslie Blackford characters upcycle baubles in Atlantic City on PolymerClayDaily.com

Head to Atlantic City for a taste of Europe this spring.

You can learn from Germany’s Bettina Welker, France’s Sylvie Peraud and Spain’s Fabiola Perez Ajates plus our own Donna Kato and Leslie Blackford from June 12-15 at the Clay Back East event.

Here you see how Leslie turns old baubles into fantastic characters as she convinces students that they can become sculptors.

Travel the world in Atlantic City.

This weekend on StudioMojo we’ll be looking at new and free tutorials – gems hiding in plain sight. And after a few years of teaching inmates, they’re teaching me a thing or two. Join us for the rest of the story.

My traditional souvenirs from polymer events are snapshots of treasure chests. It’s a treat to share with you what artists are wearing. In this case the Racine Symposium participants wore a mix of new and vintage works.

Tracy Holmes wearing a vintage Marie Segal knitted polymer stocking cap. Annie Pennington in her latest copper and Prisma-colored polymer brooch. Sarah Shriver in a new harlequin necklace. Loretta Lam in big fall beads. Wendy Malinow’s small purse (a covered Bandaid box) made years ago after she took a Cynthia Toops class and made her one and only micro mosaic piece. Dan Cormier sporting vintage Pier Voulkos.
