Claymation Resources

The History of Claymationgumby.png
Clay animation began shortly after plasticine was invented in 1897. Some obscure claymations were made in the early days and it wasn’t until the mid to late '80's that this wonderful technique began to turn into the large-scale phenomenon that it is today. Perhaps one of the best and memorable things that happened in clay animation was Art Pokey's creation of Gumby. He was one of the first superstars to be made out of clay. Even now, people still can't seem to get enough of him. He is a true legend that just keeps reincarnating. He really makes up a large part of clay animation's history.
