The IPCA is grateful again this year for the three wonderful people who are our Progress and Possibilities 2012 judges.
Libby Mills is a mixed-media polymer clay jewelry artist. Libby states on her website that “color, texture and shape captivate” her. She enjoys “exploring the contrast between textured and smooth, pattern and plain surface. Working in polymer clay allows her to play with these concepts". Adding elements in silver, copper and beadwork has opened up further avenues of exploration.” Her blog - http://libzoid.net/blog/ is a must read. Besides sharing her artistic journey, she also has interviews with other polymer clay artists in a section called “Studio Snapshots”.
Libby has been in several exhibitions and her work has appeared in numerous Polymer Clay books. She teaches at her local guild and area bead stores.
Bettina is a graphic designer and has worked as a jewelry designer and polymer clay artist since 2003. She is a co-founder of the German polymer clay guild Polyclaykunst.de and a member of several international polymer clay guilds. Since 2007, she has taught private classes in her home studio and all over Europe and in the U.S. Bettina is also the author of two books Fine Jewelry and Unique Accessories from Polymer Clay and Polymer Clay Bracelets.
Bettina was the guest artist at the 2011 IPCA Retreat in Chicago, IL, USA, and is a faculty member of CraftArtEdu.
In Progress and Possibilities 2011 Bettina was awarded first place in the Intermediate Art Jewelry category by the judges for her entry – Swing Bracelet.
Sage Bray is an award winning polymer clay artist as well as the creator, author, and publisher of The Polymer Arts magazine. She has many different websites:
The About page on her own site details her journey from a shy girl into an artistic force. Writing is definitely another passion of hers.
The Polymer Arts is a magazine for professional and aspiring polymer clay artists. Who better than Sage to be a judge for the Progress and Possibilities 2012 event. As stated on her web page the magazine is for those “truly serious about polymer as an art form, who invest a lot of time and money perfecting their skills and growing a business from their art.”
