Polymer Clay is a synthetic material that fires at 275F. It is available in a myriad of mixable colours as well as a translucent version allowing 3-dimensional effects. It can be sculpted, stamped, carved and even turned on a lathe or potter's wheel. Gera has developed her own unique approach. She paints her designs on sheets of clay with an acrylic and mica mixture then she runs the sheet through a pasta machine for a crackled effect before assembling the composition. Gera's 3-dimensional pieces require multiple firings as they are composed of the inner base to the final surface.
