At the earliest polymer clay retreats, Lindly Haunani requested a bead from each participant. The “Bead Strand” became a long, clear record of how polymer art developed.
The exhibit at the Mingei Museum in San Diego showcased polymer pioneers and gave me the opportunity to stroll through the galleries. These works brought back a flood of memories of exciting creative experiences with artists who became dear friends.
Pieces from the collections of Elise Winters, Nan Roche and others rounded out this terrific look at our past. I hope you take as much pride in this as I do. There’s a complete list of artists at the end of the video.
