FOLLOW FRIDAY: Seven and Seven

Follow Ellen Marshall and 13 other artists deepening their understanding of racism on PolymerClayDaily.com

Keep an eye on Ellen Marshall whose angular, lustrous work is being featured this week on The Gathering7and7 on Instagram and here on Facebook.

Ellen is one of seven black and seven white artists who formed a group dedicated to courageous conversations about racism in the polymer clay community and beyond.

We’ve been meeting online for a year and a half to discover our commonalities and our differences. It’s been a fascinating and sometimes uncomfortable exploration.

Truth Be Told, an exhibit of the members’ works will open in October. Follow us as we work our way forward.


We’ve got a yummy, wide-ranging lineup of artists in this week’s StudioMojo. New works will dazzle you and we’ve unearthed a tutorial that will wow.

Pop on over and have a look-see.

Polymer music

Kansas City’s Heidi McCullough (BlueHeron) wrote and performed the theme song for last weekend’s Polymer Art Summit. I believe that’s a first. It’s sung to the tune of “My Favorite Things”.

It ends with the honest refrain, “I simply remember my giant clay stash, and then I don’t feel so bad!” Thanks to Heidi and to the PAS organizers. (click for a bigger image)
