Last month, I made a long-awaited trip to Polymer Clay Express at the Artway in Laurel MD. My ostensible reason was to see my friends Rob and Wilma Yost but we all know that’s not true. I wanted to shop.

IMG_8943_newThe Artway was easy to find.  I just set the GPS and the car took me there.  How can you miss it?

IMG_8944_newThe place is huge as you can see and this is only one room!

Seeing Emily’s latest work MAY be reason enough to get a Facebook account. I know not all our members are enslaved by Mark Zuckerberg, though. So Emily will share with us here too. Thanks, Emily. Beautiful as always!


The Steer Clayer


This year Arlene Groch’s son  Mike asked her to convert a steer skull  (yes…it’s only resin, not real) into an object d’ Arte for his foundation’s fund-raiser auction during San Diego’s Gay Pride festivities this weekend.  Here’s a close up so you can appreciate Mr. Steer’s fine mica shift ghost image coat. (Fans of Barbara McGuire will recognize her wonderful Klimt designs.) Other photos show a few stages of the process and the finished object.
Mr. Steer is a bit smaller than last year’s Mr. Deer, so he probably won’t bring in as much as the $700 Mr. Deer raised for this worthy cause, but Arlene is hoping he’ll also find a good home.
