Sarah Shriver

What can we say about Sarah Nelson Shriver… she’s been coming to Maryland to teach as a guest of the CMDPCG since 2003 and is a pleasure every time.  She shares her wit and talent in every class she teaches.  Now, a bit about her background:     


She is an accomplished polymer clay artist and teacher who graduated from the University of California at Davis in 1983 with a bachelor’s degree in art. In 1986 she was employed in a fabric and art supply store in San Francisco where she first began working with polymer clay. Since 1989 she has been working full time out of her home/studio in San Rafael using the mille fiori, or caning technique to make intricately patterned beads, buttons, and jewelry. Her SS Poppy Inlaybackground in textiles is evident in her designs, which were described in an Ornament Magazine review as “meticulous, delicate, and elegant”.  

Sarah has been recognized as a pioneer and master of her craft and has participated in a number of juried and invitational exhibits and shows.  She loves to teach and has taught all over nationally in the U.S. and internationally including Israel, France, and other European countries.
