The artists who will be attending ACRE, representing the possibilities of polymer clay, and taking orders for their work are: Leslie Blackford, Jana Roberts Benzon and Doreen Gay-Kassel.

Working hard to develop fun, wholesale items for American Craft Retailers Expo in June.
It's kind of daunting!

Entry for Synergy Gallery


The MOO MiniGiftBox competition is now over. Judges (Design Director of Etsy, Michael Craig, MOO's Creative Director, Denise and MOO's Product Designer Paul) have, after much head-scratching and debate, decided upon some winners! They all win a Mosaic Frame and a pack of MiniCards.

Special award: Doreen Kassel Each of our three judges were blown away by this amazing polymer clay creation. ‘It’s like an exhibit from an Egyptian museum!’ ‘Or a fairytale’ - take our word for it, they were impressed, and thought it deserved a special prize all of its own.
