Ferry Park Gallery Artist of the Month for November is Barbara Butler

Barbara lives in South Grafton and has been interested in various crafts over the years but working with polymer clay has now become her passion, for creating jewellery and household utensils.

Polymer clay is an art medium that is known for its colours, versatility, pliability and simplicity. It is a man-made oven bake material composed of polymers, resins and colouring agents.  Barbara uses polymer clay extensively in her work to create patterns and designs to embellish utensils such as salad servers, cheese knives, children’s cutlery and beads for her jewellery. She also adds various semi-precious stones and beads to her original jewellery creations.   

With Christmas fast approaching, Barbara’s colourful display of clay covered utensils and unique necklaces, earrings and bracelets at Ferry Park Gallery has some great gift giving ideas.
