The smell of PlayDough was, at one time, intoxicating. The oddly sweet scent can still trigger warm memories of days too cold to play outside and an afternoon spent at the play table with my sister and our tiny cans of dough. Maybe those memories are part of polymer clay’s appeal to me. I had initially picked up a few blocks for the clay’s ease of use and no firing, but I can’t deny the connection. While I make jewelry, a part of me has wanted to return sculpting and pottery.
