Face Swap with Bettie Griffin & Katie Oskin

One of the things I love most about polymer clay is the way it feels in my hands. As a sculptor I feel something in clay that many others do not get to feel with polymer. I get to literally push, pull, and manipulate clay in a way that many only dream of doing. If you’ve followed this site for any length of time now, you know that I am fascinated with faces and even more so I am in love with making them.

Ginger Davis Allman of The Blue Bottle Tree, Artist Showcase

Ginger & KatieAs many of you know, this past summer I took a week and traveled down to the Ozarks to spend time with my friend, Ginger Davis Allman of The Blue Bottle Tree. Ginger and I have spent the past several years getting to know each other, but really have become more acquainted over the past 6 months by realizing we have far more in common than just polymer clay … like our mutual love of fountain pens!

On Monday each of us will be telling you all about what we did, the work we accomplished, and what we learned. But today, we are each going to take the time to have a sip of coffee with you! That’s right, with you. When we got together we decided the clay world must get to see a little more of the “real us” not just the face behind the typing. So hopefully today’s video interviews will let you see a little bit more about each of us.

I have been a fan of Kim’s for years and recently I was able to purchase a piece of hers just for myself. I love supporting other polymer artists by purchasing pieces of theirs I like or even purchasing their tutorials; after all, we’re never too old to stop learning (or collecting extraordinary art). It’s certainly my honor and privilege to have such a talented artist join me on the blog today! Kim is our featured artist for the month of June, so look for continued shout-outs to her talent on KatersAcres Twitter Feed.
