After a long break in organizing all sorts of events enforced by the pandemic, we’re really happy that this special polymer clay event will take place both offline and online. POP! Perspectives on Polymer is a five-day celebration of contemporary work in polymer, June 25-29, 2022, at Contemporary Craft (CC) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (USA).

POP! will feature five days of in-person workshops, three evenings of virtual talks, an exhibition of small works in polymer, and a curated polymer feature in the CC Store. And our Lucy is going to be a part of that as well!

There will be many renowned polymer clay artists teaching at the workshops, including Jane Pellicciotto, Jeffrey Lloyd Dever and Laura Tabakman. Each participating artist was selected for their unique perspectives on polymer and exciting ways they are moving the medium forward. The virtual talks will take place in the evenings and the speakers include Joseph Barbaccia and Lucy Štruncová.

If you are interested in hearing more about the Polymer Week journey and Lucy’s story plus learn about visual identity, we would be happy to see you online during the event!

The talks will be streamed in the CC studios to enable in-person workshop attendees to continue to work on their projects or to simply enjoy the company of their fellow attendees. In addition to the workshops and exhibition, Contemporary Craft is also expanding the polymer offerings in the Store. Work by a specially curated selection of artists will be featured and available for purchase.

The creative force behind POP! is Contemporary Craft Education Manager, Allison Jones. Inspired by the breadth and quality of the polymer work in the CC Store, Allison began formulating plans for a special polymer feature. This idea grew from a feature to a week-long event celebrating the medium.

“Throughout the planning process, we knew we wanted to feature this exciting medium in a way that is true to who we are as Contemporary Craft. We wanted to highlight artists who are taking the medium in new, fresh directions,” said Allison Jones. “All of the instructors were selected because of their contemporary approach to composition and their solid technique.”
