Featured Artist Randee Ketzel



 Meet Randee Ketzel
PCAGOE featured artist for the weeks of October 13th through October 26th. 
Please go check out her highlighted works on the PCAGOE Facebook page!


Randee works as both polymer artist and teacher in Austin, the capital city of Texas. She has been featured on both Polymer Clay Daily and The Daily Polymer Arts blog. Her work has been published in several magazines and featured in museum shops. Randee is also a member of the International Polymer Clay Guild and the Austin and Houston Polymer Clay Guilds. Randee has co-authored (with Kim Schlinke) a wonderful book entitled Polymer Clay Gemstones and the Art of Deception.

Randee says this about her journey to polymer: "I always suspected that art would be my life--and luckily, I was right. I studied Byzantine Art and Archaeology in Florida before being irresistibly drawn into the world of metalwork as one of the youngest women jewelers in the Southeast during the early eighties. Eventually, impending motherhood demanded that I bid metals goodbye, and I experimented with a variety of less-toxic media before discovering--and being discovered by--polymer clay. This incredible stuff has become muse and mantra, and I eagerly await each new day's adventure in it."
