Today's Featured Artist ColtPixy

Star aka ColtPixy is the guild master of the Polymer Clay Smooshers Guild.



Lets get to know Star:
She has studied art and crafts her entire life. She does not have a favorite medium to work with. She LOVES them all! For many years she did nothing but paint. Her husband introduced her to stained glass. She loves working with glass but there is a LOT of scrap. She hates wasting anything. This led to mosaics. For about 10 years she rarely made anything but mosaics. In the past few years she has discovered that she really is happier not limiting herself to just that.

With the freedom of using different mediums came the ability to explore, learn and express herself more freely.

She prefers things that are one of a kind. So most of her items are just that OOAK. When she does reproduce something she incorporates subtle differences so that they are not exactly alike. Two roses on a vine are both similar but there are subtle differences that make each unique.

Right now her focus is mainly on polymer clay. She is a fantastic artist with wonderful items. You can check out her shop HERE and her blog HERE.


Next I would like to share a few of my favorite items in Star's Studio:

As the proud owner of a Pixy piece (and I've purchased several as gifts) I have to say Star is not only a creative artisan but a really nice person too :)
