Notes on Polymer Clay

We’ve been sharing some notes about Polymer Clay and the extraordinary work and experience of our guest artist Sara Amrhein.  Today we’ll like to share some other notes that lead you to find more on polymer history, spotlight on different artists as well as other relevant topics and developments.

Rachel Carren and Elise Winters archivists of POLYMER ART ACHIVE have lots of interesting information to share about the Polymer Clay World. A site where professional artists working in the medium of polymer will find inspiration. Museum and gallery curators will be able to access documentation about the evolution of this vibrant medium for artistic expression. And serious collectors will discover windows to new works and the medium’s most collectible artists. Take a look to their website!
