Duality – The Concept & The Challenge

Duality by KatersAcres

For most of us, we are a Duality: Happy and sad. Sick and Well. Good and bad. Right and wrong. Rich and Poor.

For many of us there is one side that shows more than the other. Today we will see both of those sides, look at them, see what they show, what they mean … and even discover whether they can work together in your clay work, or not.

2017 Polymer Clay Challenge | CLICK to Learn How to GROW in 2017 with Polymer Clay

The 2017 Polymer Clay Challenge is here! Last year’s 2016 Polymer Clay Challenge was a great success. Many people were able to successfully able to complete all 52 weeks of the challenge.

2016 Polymer Clay Challenge, Week 20 Polymer Clay Face Sculptures by KatersAcres

Polymer Clay Faces | #2016PCChallenge

REGROUPING: Sometimes it’s hard to face the truth … I’ve known the truth for about 2 months now … but facing that truth has been a different story. So what “truth” am I talking about? I’m talking about satisfaction with polymer clay. Many of us can honestly say that we are satisfied with what we are doing with clay. Not all of us like or are drawn to the same aspects of claying. Some polymer clay artists prefer caning like Wendy Jorre de St Jorre, vessels like Donna Greenburg, quirky creatures like Lisa Renner, pods like Doreen Kassel, jewelry like Lisa Pavelka, that fun organic feel like Christi Friesen, or sculpting like me! But when your soul aches from a kind of lethargy (let’s call it like it is … boredom) … it’s time to move on.

KatersAcres 2015PCChallenge Dragon Showcase

The 2015 polymer clay challenge has come to a close. In 52 weeks, I created 64 dragons! Woo hoo!

Cate Van Alphen 2015 PCChallengeIf you participated this year and were successful, take a journey through your photos and see how you’ve progressed during the year. No matter what you did, your first designs at the beginning of the year will likely look different from the end of the year. You have grown, you have changed, and your design ideas likely went through a transformation too.

2015 Polymer Clay Challenge - Week 52 with #KatersAcres #2015PCChallenge

The Final Week

The final week of the #2015PCChallenge has arrived!

My 2015 polymer clay challenge was to create (at least) one polymer clay dragon & one new Parker a week. As you go back through my posts, you will see on many occasions where I was only able to complete a polymer clay dragon. Poor Parker. Each participant in the 2015 Polymer Clay Challenge was encouraged to make something they want and decide on their own theme for the year.
