Gwen Gibson
Gwen's work with polymer clay arises from an impulse to play with a new medium, ancient images and wearable form. In the process of working with culturally remote images, she has discovered that polymer clay fulfills her need for a repertoire of surface effects, which serve the accretions of time. To Gwen, images come from far away and undergo countless metamorphoses with each stop along the way like the 17th century geishas which on their way to embellishing a bracelet, visited and were transformed by an imaginary Japanese comic strip artist.
