About the Artist: Laura Tabakman
I was born in Argentina, where my family and I lived until we moved to the US. I currently live and work in Pittsburgh. After exploring several media including photography, I discovered fiber arts and later polymer clay. I began working with polymer clay in 1995, making jewelry. The attraction to polymer clay comes from the versatility of the material. My current work integrates all my interests into jewelry, digital printing, mixed-media sculptures and installations. An award-winning studio artist, my work has been shown in exhibitions nationally and internationally and has been featured in books and magazines. I have been teaching in the US and abroad since 2005.
