Pioneers Of Polymer Clay

I want to give a heartfelt thanks to all the pioneers of polymer clay. They stretched their imaginations to show us what this incredible art medium called polymer clay is capable of creating. If it were not for them I doubt any of use would be making the amazing pieces I see coming to life every day.

I found a wealth of information and pictures over at the Polymer Art Archive. If you haven’t checked it out in full, you really should ! The following are bits & pieces from the archive.

    What incredible talent! I doubt I will ever achieve this level – but the inspiration I get from it is enough from me.
