The art of Polymer Clay is one of our speaker's many talents.Dotty has been a hand weaver since 1972.She began to create in polymer clay in 1989.A Rhode Island native, Dotty moved to California in 1969, and to Mountain View in 1979.In 1969 she received her A.B. degree at Cornell University with a minor in Art History.She continued her education at Stanford University where she received her M.A. in Education.She is a California State certified elementary and middle schoolteacher who has taught since 1971.
Dotty began her presentation with a brief history of polymer clay.After providing us with resource material, she began by covering the basics of safe use, hand and machine softening of polymer clay, color use and color blending, and baking.Geometric clay canes were created, and, using simple tools, these items turned into buttons, earrings, beads and other jewelry.Throughout her presentation items were passed among the group so we were able to feel the shapes and consistency of the raw clay.Dotty stressed that no previous experience is needed to complete these items.
A member of the Handweavers Guild of America, the National Polymer Clay Guild and the South Bay Polymer Clay Guild, Dotty's work has been featured in Sew News magazine in December 1998, September and December 1999, and March 2000.
