Maggie Maggio has studied and played with color for over thirty years. Trained as an architect and interior designer, Maggie discovered polymer clay in the early 1990′s and immediately recognized its potential for exploring color. As a co-founder of the Northwest Polymer Clay Guild, she was a member of the four person team that created Ravensdale ’96 , the first national polymer clay conference. In 2000-2001 she chaired the National Polymer Clay Guild’s Courting the Muse conference at Bryn Mawr College, and as Vice-President of the International Polymer Clay Association she co-chaired the 2008 Synergy I conference in Baltimore, Maryland. Maggie and Lindly Hanauni are co-authors of the book Polymer Clay Color Inspirations, recently published by Watson-Guptill/Random House. With the polymer clay book behind her, Maggie is now focusing on expanding her circle, sharing her eye-opening approach to color with artists, designers, craftsmen and crafters in all media.
