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.
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 email@example.com and I will shoot you a couple questions.
