PolyPediaOnline Students Gallery - When Cosmic Ceramic meets YOU!

There is a say - "It is important to do the right research as well as to do the research right."

When we begin working on a new idea – when ink meets paper, brush meets canvas, hands meet (polymer) clay – It sometimes takes days, weeks or months of simmering and doodling until these tiny fragments slowly fuse together, letting us know it is time to show up and give them a physical form.

Featured on Polymer Clay Daily and "The Polymer Arts" blog, the "Cosmic Ceramic" was that moment. An idea coming to life in the right form at the right time with the right possibilities.
With "a little" work, our research was done.

When Hilla and myself got your wonderful photos, we knew you guys enjoyed it as much as we did.

Feedback such as -
"Thank You so much for helping me get back into my art. For the last 6 months I have been out of the mood, but your Tutorial brought me out of that." 

"The technique is genius! I can't wait to try it!"

"Thank you for your hard work in producing these excellent quality classes! Everyone who loves polymer clay should see this work!"

This post is for you, my dear worldwide students and friends, who make me feel like their proud mentor and keep me smiling each and every day.
Thank you all for sending along your wonderful photos and letting us know how much you are enjoying your time with this tutorial. This is the reason we do what we do, with lot's of love.

Here is the Cosmic selection of worldwide artists -
Italian Ornella AMATUCCI, with a diploma in arts, she gives expression to her fantasy and creativity in different forms: painting, artistic handwriting, creating jewelry in polymer clay and using different materials. This is her inspiration to the Himalayan Totem Pendants

outoftimedesigns - Kathy Richardson is having a good time with the ceramic technique. She started with pendants then moved to the mini houses, tea boxes and finalized with the incense holders. She is a self-taught artist, likes to play with any and all kinds of crafts/arts. Jewelry is her latest love. She says she has a web site but tend to sell her things while she is wearing them... ;)
