    The 20 Minute Effect

    I first heard the term “flow state” in 1986 from Dr. Ruth; (and she was not talking about clay). It was Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi who coined the term in 1975. According to Wikipedia: “… a flow state, also known colloquially as being in the zone, is the mental state in which a person performing some activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full...

Although most of you have some...

    #HowDoYouSculpey-What I Like Most About Sculpey and How I Work With It

    “Hungry Fungus", made with Sculpey Premo™ When I was asked what I like best about Sculpey and especially how I use it, at first I did not know what to say. Honestly the answer is not that easy!

    #HowDoYouSculpey

    This is a great hashtag to answer, as it has really made me look at my clay journey over the last few years.  My love of Sculpey  and polymer clay began with sculpting silly and super simple zombie fingers for friends. I was enthralled by how the this medium took to form and texture. The colors choices from bright to...

    My Liquid Sculpey Design and Exploration Journey Pt 2

    In my first blog I talked about my beginning adventures with Liquid Clay (LS), including how I once "lost" it in my oven. Ohhh, and then Liquid Sculpey really got exciting (and easy!) when we discovered silicone molds! I made several pendants for my friends using just the seahorse and coral combination! First I want to point out something...

    My Liquid Sculpey Design and Exploration Journey

    I was asked to write about Liquid Sculpey and I thought, "What am I going to talk about? How to use it? When to use it? That's pretty much been talked about already." So I decided instead to take you on a little pictorial journey with me and my LS. Translucent Liquid Sculpey (which we affectionately all refer to as...

    Finding your Polymer Clay Peeps

    By: Sherman Oberson I’m currently attending a polymer clay retreat as I write this. It’s called Clay Back East and is being held in Atlantic City, New Jersey. It made me think of how being social with polymer clay has shaped my journey as an artist. When I first started out with polymer clay I was a kid, an aunt...

    Translucent clay components: Colour Inside and Colour Outside

    When I first began exploring polymer I was coming from years working with hot glass. You can imagine how excited I was to find that translucent clay existed in a few varieties in the Polyform line! I found it was a natural progression from sandblasted glass to translucent polymer clay. It’s very easy to add small amounts of colour to...

    My Creative Space

      I recently improved my work space! I’m a serious sculptor, and as my passion and professionalism grow, I need my work space to reflect that growth.  I finally have an “L” desk, so one side can be for my products, and one side can be for the actual sculpting. There is also a smaller desk to the left that...

    Making holiday sculptures

    by Megan Durocher Before the snow starts to fall, I’m working on holiday and winter-themed sculptures. As soon as there’s a chill in the air I start looking at the red and green clay. I’m very much a home-body, so when winter arrives it’s really an excuse for me to stay in, bundle up, and do things like read, bake...

    Becoming a Sculptor

    by Megan Durocher We all have someone who inspires us. For me, that was my stepfather, Dennis. While he was on hospice, I took care of him. During this time, he told me that I needed to do something for myself as well. I tried to think of things that I could pursue and find time for while still being...

    Full Polymer clay? Or mixed media ?

    By  Marion Le Coq As usual, let me talk to you about one of my dilemmas in my polymer clay journey. What kind of clayer are you ? The one that makes everything from polymer clay ? Or the one who loves using different materials mixed with it to create effects ? I never know which one I am. Maybe because I always...

    Light, Clay and Everything about Transparency By: Marion Le Coq

    Have you ever had that kind of obsession that follows you everywhere ? Something that goes farther than your creations. Something that stays in your mind wherever you are, whatever you do. Like a lullaby you can’t stop whistling? I’ve had that THING for decades. Since I was a child discovering the world. I have always been attracted to Art, and...

    When Looking for Inspiration

    I know many artists look to the outdoors when inspiration disappears and you are probably thinking I am being very predictable, but Mother Nature is amazing isn’t she? I am lucky to have October as ‘my’ featured month as Autumn shades are emerging, the deep russet and copper tones I can see through my window are truly stunning and because...

    My Stories by: Amy Koranek

    I’ve been claying since 1989. The first time I saw anything ever made in polymer clay was on my honeymoon—so it’s easy for me to remember how long I’ve been at this. My husband and I were honeymooning on St. Martin, and there was this jewelry case chock full of—to me—the most intriguing designs in I didn’t know what! My...

    Thinking Outside the Jewelry Box

    I LOVE to make jewelry. I’ll always make jewelry. The only thing jewelry-making lacks is the ability to “work large”. You see, I sometimes I feel like I spend entire days without moving anything but my eyeballs and four of my fingers (2 pointers, two thumbs). Such is the life of a caner. So, for balance (and sanity), I started...
