Klew’s Gallery

I found the polymer clay medium in the late 80’s. I knew of a similar product that only came in white when I was in elementary school, and after having an idea to make a sculptural brooch series; off I went to the local craft store in search of this oven baked clay. After arriving in the store and requesting this clay I was told that they no longer carried it, but they had “FIMO”. Well, I asked what it was and to show me the product…much to my surprise it now came in colors! Although there were no publications on the product other than a leaflet, I spent my last $20 and off I went.

I was inspired by Marie & Howard Segal at a show and watched with amazement how Marie manipulated this medium and I was no longer in the dark and unafraid. My life has not been the same since, the clay and I soon developed a rapport and by the end of the sixth month of discovery I thought I’d re-invented the wheel when I figured out that the design reduces within the clay roll or “cane.”

Although my clay choices have changed throughout the last 18 years today I enjoy mostly Kato Poly-clay, and the excitement has kept its momentum for me.
