Klew’s Gallery

After I had a dream vision to create a brooch series so I went in search of the material to use. I had recalled a white modelling clay-“Sculpey” my sister used while working for Disney Imagineering back in the 70’s to create their prototypes. After arriving at the craft store and requesting this material I was directed to their “FIMO” area, 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.  Imagine trying to make a checkerboard pattern using the garlic press-YIKES!
      That was the mid 80’s and Life has not been the same since. The clay and I soon developed a rapport and by the end of the next sixth months through discovery I thought I’d re-invented the wheel when I figured out that the design reduces within the “cane” through manipulation!
About a year into it I attended a hugh Craft Convention called HIA where I met Marie Segal and as I watched with amazement how Marie manipulated this medium I was no longer afraid to grab hold of my future.
Although my clay choices have changed throughout the years today I still have many brands from all those years of practice and beta testing so of course I mix them toghether and call it good! I teach using Premo brand.
