Polymer Clay Global Perspectives takes readers on an exciting journey through the most popular categories of contemporary polymer work, including mixed-media, miniatures, jewelry, large-scale artwork, and more.
NEW YORK, NY.- From the coasts of Canada to the mountains of Nepal, polymer clay has become a common language among artists. For many, polymer is a wonderful medium for self-expression and coping with life’s changes—and with its portability, it proves to be the perfect material for artists on the go. In Polymer Clay Global Perspectives: Emerging Ideas and Techniques from 125 International Artists (Potter Craft, $22.99, on sale July 30, 2013), Cynthia Tinapple, polymer clay artist and founder of the popular blog Polymer Clay Daily, presents inspirational galleries, in-depth artist profiles, and guided projects that highlight the most exciting trends and influences in polymer clay around the world.

Polymer Clay Global Perspectives takes readers on an exciting journey through the most popular categories of contemporary polymer work, including mixed-media, miniatures, jewelry, large-scale artwork, and more. Along the way, Cynthia features thirteen artists and their intriguing back stories and signature techniques—from Madrid, where artist Fabiola Pérez Ajates teaches student workshops on how to create unique projects like her hand-carved and colorful Floral Pendant, to Tel Aviv, where artist Shay Aaron transforms his addiction to unhealthy food into a passion for creating miniature Pizza Charms.

Altogether, the stunning artwork from 125 international polymer clay artists, along with Cynthia Tinapple’s expertise and encouragement, make Polymer Clay Global Perspectives the perfect resource for readers looking to take their artwork to a new and exciting place.

Cynthia Tinapple is the founder of the blog Polymer Clay Daily, a showcase for polymer clay art and a portal for the polymer clay community. A lifetime member of the International Polymer Clay Guild, she lectures at national and international craft and polymer clay conferences and teaches classes online. She has worked as a polymer clay artist since the late 1980s, collaborating with her husband, woodworker Blair Davis, to embellish his turned bowls and other objects with polymer clay inlay designs.
