Polymer meets Wire


Graphic Chains

Wonderful things happened at Synergy4 this past summer. Bonnie Bishoff presented about her new direction with polymer and metal. It was fascinating. I had seen Bonnie and her partner J.M Syron’s furniture in the Racine Art Museum. To see her smaller work with jewelry and hear about her cold connections with wire was eye opening and inspiring. Later Bonnie and her friend of 30 years (and IPCA Vice President of Education) Kathryn Corbin snuck off to flesh out an extremely rare 2 day workshop, Polymer Meet Wire. It will be held May 19-20, 2018, hosted by the New England Polymer Clay Guild in Franklin, Massachusetts. Details can be found here.

To see the jewelry of Bonnie's that made me drool at Synergy4, visit this page of her website.

IPCA Charitable Giving Page

At this time of annual giving to your favorite non-profits, our US members might like to consider a tax-deductible gift to the IPCA in support of its new and enhanced initiatives on behalf of the polymer community.
As individual artists, you will soon be able to participate in member only peer-to-peer forums moderated by international artists, and enjoy many new member benefits including a new bi-monthly publication, annual “Tips and Tutes” e-book, and more.
With your help, the IPCA Board hopes to be able to start developing curriculum for school programs, grants to individual artists and guilds, as well begin outreach to Museum curators, galleries and publications in the larger art world to increase awareness of the medium and become a point of contact for inquires about artists in the field for potential exhibitions, etc.
We hope you will consider including IPCA in your charitable giving this year. Happy Holidays and a Healthy and Creative New Year to all our members,
