Euro Polymer Clay People
– A Photo Album of European Polymer Clay Artists and their Work-
The International Polymer Clay Association has gone international this year and there is a growing community of Polymer Clayers in Europe. The connection to America is still quite weak and only a couple of European artists are household names on both sides of the big pond. In February 2010 the Synergy II Conference will take place in Baltimore. At this meeting a lot of connections are made, but this is not a road
many Europeans can travel.
With all this in mind an idea was born: the idea of a photo album of European Clay People and their work, which will travel to the Synergy Conference in 2010.
This Photo Album will show the wide variety of European Clay Work in its present state (that is in 2009), but to show it, we need YOU!!!! All of you Polymer Clay enthusiasts in Europe!
We will select a good number of people, that will have the opportunity to show their work: Five pictures of their work (one bigger and four smaller ones), your Name, City and Country, a contact Email or URL, and, if you like, a small picture of you. We would like a short description of you and your work (about 200 – 300 words, in English. This text will not be edited, so please, send it in in good English!).
The pictures have to be of high quality ( one 210 by 130 mm, 400 dpi, four 130 by 100 mm 400 dpi) and uncut. Preferable unpublished, but that is not a hard and fast rule. However if your work has been published anywhere else already, do state so, please!
We do especially encourage new faces and of all European countries (including Israel and Turkey) to send in their entries.
There is an option of buying a printed version for everyone after the Synergy Conference in February 2010, if there is enough interest in it. The price will depend on how many people show their interest in this project.
We hope this call for entries will be of interest for a great number of European Clayers and we are looking forward to seeing your work! Please do send your work in before the 10th of December 2009. The ones we select will have to sign an agreement, which will give us permission to publish their work.
Please, forward this call of entries to other European Clayers, who you think might be intrested in sending their work to us!
If you do have any additional questions, please do send us an Email, and we will be happy to help you!
