Synergy I Banquet.

The highlight of the Banquet on the last night of the conference  was Cynthia Tinapple’s keynote speech, Watch Where You’re Going Effects Ripple Out. You can see the slide show from the speech on her blog, Polymer Clay Daily.

The conference organizers asked us to bring items to decorate the banquet tables.  Aside from the occasional snapshot of someone wearing something interesting (“Please, would you mind if I took your picture?”) these are the only pictures of polymer clay I took at the conference.   I will post more pictures soon, but you can feast on these for a while. And yes, the dessert was as good as it looks. 

Synergy I: The History of Polymer Clay in Bead Making

2-kathleen-dustin-early-polymer-clay-beads-opening-lecture-20.jpg

Polymer clay came into use before the Internet and before pasta machines, tissue blades and the other tools we now take for granted.  Kathleen Dustin was there from the beginning, so she was well qualified to deliver a talk at Synergy on the history of polymer clay in bead making. (Most of us know that it was originally developed as a doll making material). If you want to see some of the pictures from the slide show, they will be posted soon on the Polymer Art Archive

In the coming days, I plan to put up slide shows from the pictures I took at the Synergy conference. Keep checking  for updates. The most convenient way is to add this blog’s feed to your news reader.  You can also subscribe  by email using the tools in the bar on the right hand side.
