Q&A With This Artist
A: My main material is polymer clay and I use various tools and techniques, many borrowed from ceramics, glass, woodworking and metalworking, to manipulate this man-made, heat set clay.
A: Polymer clay is a very approachable material - it takes texture, shape and color with ease - so I can quickly develop an idea. I also like that it allows an artist to put plastic in its proper place as a semi precious material instead of a single use material.
A: In an effort to reduce waste in my studio I recycle all of my own polymer clay. I use un-cured clay and hardened, previously cured clay and even polymer clay dust all of which I capture and incorporate back into new pieces of jewelry.
A: I am amazed that I find new ideas within my own old ideas. Artist often talk about being inspired - and I am inspired by coastlines, travel, relationships... but truthfully when it comes to idea generation, if I just keep mulling over and working with older designs I always find a new idea, right there were I left off.
