Call for Artists: "SHOUT" - crafthaus online exhibition

“Shout” is an online exhibition of crafthaus featuring polymer clay art. Anything made primarily with polymer clay, from jewelry to furniture and everything in between, is appropriate. We shout when we really want someone to hear what we have to say. “Shout” will be a celebration of works of art where the artist’s voice is clear and unique.

This is an open to ALL crafthaus members to submit up to 3 pieces for consideration.
Submission:
1. Images: You may submit up to 3 pieces for consideration. Each piece may be
represented by a full view image and a detail.
Please include in the file name of each image: your name and title of the piece. Example:
RonnaWeltman_JumpforJoy.jpg
Image size: medium format works best on crafthaus, 300 x 400 .jpg format.
2. On a Word document: Contact information for me to reach you.
For the exhibit: List of materials, dimensions in height x width x depth, and
one or two sentences about your piece.
Please submit images/descriptions/commentary to Ronna at ronnaround(at)comcast(dot)net.

The exhibition will run on crafthaus for a month. Deadline for entries: May 22, 2010.

About the Curator: Ronna Sarvas Weltman is the author of Ancient Modern: Polymer Clay and Wire Jewelry. Her art jewelry has been featured in books, magazines and on TV, and she is a featured artist in the upcoming Masters: Polymer Clay, to be published by Lark Books in late 2010. She is also a contributing editor to Step by Step Wire Jewelry magazine. Ronna writes about art and creativity in magazines and other print and social media, and teaches classes in jewelry craft and technique that focus on helping students find their own “voice” in art jewelry. Some of her classes are week-long workshops in exotic locales, because it’s always a good idea to visit paradise every so often.

I'm intrigued by these ovens - they seem perfect for a studio where space is limited - compact, energy efficient and they won't heat up the entire house.  European polymeristas have commented on them…Continue

Just want to say Hello to all the Polymer Clay enthusiasts on the forum and looking forward to participating in the discussions.
Curious about the resin clay- does it contain pigment or how do you pigment it?
Comment by Lauren Abrams on November 17, 2009 at 2:07pm
Hi Kerin,
What exactly IS resin clay, anyway?
