Celie Fago has been a professional artist and writer for 35 years. She studied painting, printmaking, and sculpture at UVM, Mass College of Art, and Tufts, and metalwork at the League of NH Craftsmen where she apprenticed to a classically trained metalsmith. Her widely exhibited jewelry, combining Precious Metal Clay with polymer clay and metalsmithing, is distinguished by elegant design, resonant color, and attention to detail. She is highly regarded as a generous teacher and as an innovator in the combination of these materials. She is 1 of 9 Senior Instructors for the Rio Grande Rewards Program. The author of numerous articles on PMC and polymer clay, she wrote the book Keum-Boo on Silver and co-authored Polymer Clay: Exploring New Techniques and New Materials.
