Faux Enamel

Recently, I re-connected with polymer clay artist, Debbie Anderson.  Debbie and I met in 1993, by chance through our shared interest in polymer clay.  We were two of the original members of the South Bay Polymer Clay Guild.  Debbie remained active in the guild, while I pursued my interest in Art History and knitting.

While listening to ADELE on my daily five mile hike, my mind began to wander…I wondered if the South Bay Polymer Clay Guild still existed.   I decided to give Debbie a call and indeed the guild still exists.  Much to my surprise, Debbie was teaching a class entitled, “Faux Enamel.”

On July 9, 2012, I returned to my polymer clay roots, as I cranked my pasta machine for the first time in twelve years.  Polymer clay sheets, Chiyogami Paper and resin were layered in a specific order, baked in a convection oven, which resulted in one-of-a-kind art pieces resembling the process of enameling.

The class was expertly taught, and I look forward to my next class with Debbie Anderson.

The pieces shown in these two photographs are backed by felt I created using the wet-felting technique.

I enjoy the process of pushing the world of fiber to its limits with the use of knitting needles and various methods of experimentation. Along the way, the lens of my camera captures what I see.
