This Wednesday, I’d like to introduce you to Star aka ColtPixy. ColtPixy runs the ArtFire Polymer Clay Guild known as the Smooshers. It’s an inclusive group and it has a whole line up of clayers from new-to-clay to old hands.

1. So, introduce yourself!

Hi my name is Angelina Star Edwards. In person everyone calls me Star and online most people know me as ColtPixy. I currently reside in beautiful, rural Tennessee.

2. Why do you work with polymer clay?

For many years I made my living creating stained glass mosaics but as a hobby I sculpted with polymer clay. Several years ago I severely injured a tendon in my hand and my orthopedic surgeon suggested I do that the other way around.

3. What’s your favourite technique in clay?

From then on my main focus has been sculpting and I could not be happier. I am so lucky to be doing what I love.

You can see more of Star’s work here:

What’s up with Wednesdays? Well, Wednesdays are going to be my day to Meet People, where by “people” I mean polymer clay artists and polymer clay art enthusiasts. If you’re interested in a bit of a spotlight, email me at polymerclay@craftgossip.com and I will shoot you a couple questions.

    This is so well deserved! Not only is Star uber talented (LOVE that passion flower!) but so generous and giving of herself, she is the backbone of the Smooshers =)
