Recently Maggie Maggio and myself were delighted to be interviewed by Allison Lee at Craftcast about our new book- Polymer Clay Color Inspirations and our shared passion for color. Although Alison indicated that she was “new” at interviewing two people at once, she did a wonderful job, while asking insightful questions.
“Alison Lee, host of the popular online radio show, CRAFTCAST™, has been a ‘maker’ since learning how to knit at her grandmother’s side, nurturing a life-long love affair with handcrafts that would make her Nannie proud. CRAFTCAST™ began four years ago when Lee, armed with a passion for all things handmade, the gift of gab, a keen ability to put people at ease and a warm sense of humor, began interviewing artists, crafters and individuals engaged in the business of art, posting the radio interviews on her blog. Ms. Lee, who left a successful career as a creative director to pursue her dream of inspiring other ‘makers’, is a pioneer in the world of online talk shows. People around the world are listening, downloading more than 400,000 CRAFTCAST™ episodes since the radio show’s inception! Lee’s interviews keep crafters inspired and connected to their creative cycles, complete with her weekly sign-off that affectionately reminds listeners to “get your butt in the chair and keep crafting!””
Alison is one of the presenters at the upcoming International Polymer Clay Guild Conference in Baltimore this February 24th-27th, 2010 at Synergy2
