Weltman’s new book

Ronna Weltman’s polymer clay brooch called “Three-Ring Circus” seemed an appropriate feature today in the middle of our country’s craziness.

This crisp .pdf sneak peak at Ronna’s new book on polymer clay and wire is the perfect thing to distract your thoughts and brighten your day. Ancient Modern is coming out from Interweave Press in the spring.

“As much as I enjoy making art, I probably get more joy teaching and helping others find their voice in art and jewelry,” says Ronna. Check out her class schedule.

          Thank you for your kind comments. I’m so lucky to have Interweave for my publisher. Right now it’s in editors’ hands (yes, that’s editor(s) plural) who go through it with a fine-tooth comb and test each of the projects so that by the time the book is published, we’re sure everything in it is helpful and expands the possibilities of this Very Fun Medium, and also that every project is easily duplicated by artists and weekend-crafters — yes, you CAN do this at home, and you don’t need to be a professional.

          This blog is still my morning cup of coffee. Love it always, every single day.

              I have been lucky enough to see Ronna’s progress at different stages of the book’s development and I am truly inspired by both the book and the direction that her jewelry has taken over the last year. Though you see hints of the artists who have influenced her, the work is all Ronna and different than anything out there today – this sneak peek is just enough to whet your appetite, but trust me, the balance of the book is even more exciting. With this work she helps move the medium a little to the left…

              Kudos to you Ronna – can’t wait for the launch!

                      Ronna is one of my favorite artists, and her work never fails to inspire me. I don’t add to my book collection very often, but I’m eagerly looking forward to including Ronna’s. My congratulations to her on this wonderful achievement!

                        Congratulations Ronna! I’m a big fan of your work and I’m really looking forward to what I know will be a fabulous book.

                          I only wish there were words to express how I anticipate the publishing of this book. I’m new to polymer clay and I can already tell this book will be a permanent “go to” resource. Thank you again and again, Ronna!
