“An experienced teacher, Tory’ Hughes’ videos and courses at ArtRanch, and past articles in Ornament, are as much a lesson in life as in making art. Both philosophy and techniques are clear and well-blended in this volume, offering a vicarious taste of this talented author’s teaching style”
-Robert Liu, Ornament Magazine, 2007: “Publication Reviews”
“Tory, ‘Polymer, the Chameleon Clay’ should be THE first book newbies buy!
You know what I love about it? You write for the grown-ups.
You don’t dumb it down, you explain technical aspects that most books ignore, you are clear and practical, the photos are terrific and inspiring, and you’re accessible and not intimidating. The basics are worth pure gold.” —- Sidney O, Phoenix AZ

"Tory Hughes' DVD series will not simply get you started with polymer clay, it will give you all the tricks and techniques you need to be an accomplished polymer clay artist. The series is as relevant today as it was when they were made over a decade ago.
“Hughes goes beyond tricks and techniques, however, to empower the viewer to "think in polymer." Her engaging personality and delightful sense of humor make this series the most effective mini-art school education one could ever hope to get (at a fraction of the price and right in your own home!)"
- Ronna Sarvas Weltman, award-winning polymer clay artist and author,"Ancient Modern: Polymer Clay + Wire Jewelry" 2009, Interweave Press
