Intro to Polymer Clay with Emily Squires Levine – FULL
Join exhibiting artist Emily Squires Levine to learn the basics of polymer clay, a versatile non-earthen clay that is valued for its vibrancy and ease of use. Students will learn how to cane the clay to create beautiful designs as they create small bowls with the use of armatures. This workshop is open to those without previous clay experience as well as those who have handled it previously but wish to expand their knowledge. All materials are provided.
Emily Squires Levines’ artwork will be on view at the Hunterdon Art Museum January 12 through March 1, 2020.
Emily is a polymer artist who translates her love of color and pattern into one-of-a-kind 3-dimensional vessels and 2-dimensional wall art. Working alone in a home studio, she blends original color palettes from the primary colors, creates and transforms “canes” using the Italian millefiori technique, and forms her pieces through the juxtaposition of cane slices of contrasting colors, shapes, patterns and open spaces.
Exhibiting at shows, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art Contemporary Craft Show, the Smithsonian Craft+Design Show, and at multiple galleries, Emily has received several awards for her work.
Emily has an MBA and worked in the investment advisory industry before pursuing art full-time.
