Just as the Washington DC area is digging out from two major snow storms within a week (and the accompanying cabin fever) … it is snowing again! I am looking forward to the Cabin Fever Clay Fest in Laurel this weekend and Synergy2 in Baltimore the next week!
I am still recovering from my surgery and getting stronger each day. I am grateful for all of the support I have received throughout the past couple of months and have enjoyed the calls, emails, cards and flowers!

Here is a sneak peek = kalediescoped image – via KrazyDad’s online kaleidoscope tool of the collaborative piece that Leslie Blackford and myself have made for the upcoming Synergy2 exhibit (both online and in Baltimore this February). It was certainly a lot of fun to make.
The excitement about this exhibit is building- you can participate in an online contest to identify the artists who participated in Laurie Mikas collaborative “quilt” here. Continue reading ‘Colorful Sneak Peek…’

At the First Synergy conference in Baltimore I attended a presentation by Robert Dancik on Cold Connections- and as the room filled up to standing room only, I began to wonder just how he was going to demonstrate riveting to a crowd of that size…. and he did it be super sizing his demo materials! Even the people on the back could see an eight inch by two foot rivet tube.
A couple of weeks ago as I was preparing color samples for a workshop- I decided to take Roberts lead and “super sized” my samples so they would be easier for a large group to see. Instead of using a 3/4″ Kemper cutter to make some tasting tiles- I used a 2″ Ateco square cutter. These cutters are available as a set of six (1 3/8′ – 2 5/8″) and may be ordered from Polymer Clay Express.
Next time you make color samples you may want to try super sizing them- it doesn’t take that much more clay if you roll your sheets thin on a pasta machine and they are much easier to see- either in your studio or part of a class presentation. If you are working along with the exercises in our (Maggie Maggio and myself) book- Polymer Clay Color Inspirations- having the tasting tiles in chapter Four/ Choosing Your Colors for a Project Palette ”super sized” would make them easier to see and use.
