Who am I?

I'm Angela Schwer, a polymer clay artist and mother who is passionate about equal rights and feminism. I'm honest, easy-going, often crass, but always unsettled. Unsettled in the sense that if I'm not moving, doing, or making, I'm driving someone crazy (typically my husband who says that squirrels are my people).

I'm drawn to detail, movement, and capturing the textures in nature that are often overlooked. I could spend all day looking over fabrics, cellular photography, and the complexity of plant structures. I take these inspirations and use them in my clay pieces to make unique art for people who want a one-of-a-kind piece.

I also enjoy the look of surprise when witnessing a shift in another's perspective on what polymer clay can be used for. Previously considered a craft medium, I have found that polymer can be used in unexpected ways to create explosive pieces of art.

My art has been featured on various art blogs, as well as featured in the artist spotlight on This is Colossal. You can see it here:

Why me?

Because this isn't just a business transaction, it is a trusted relationship. I will work in tandem with your input for larger custom pieces so that you get exactly what you want.

I have been working with clay since 2004 while working in a classroom with my professor teaching students of various art mediums. Over the years, I have refined my techniques, and am a strong believer that talent accompanies dedication to your craft. While I originally started in flowers, my line is ever changing, and you will find new items all the time (remember...squirrels!).


What will you get?

You will get a one-of-a-kind sculpture made entirely by myself, one detailed piece at a time. I will create an voluminous, wild, and complex piece just for you. Each piece will be signed and dated on the back as well. You will also get a trusted relationship with an artist that will work with you in all aspects of custom designs.

You can also check my Instagram account where I update most of my pieces in process when you follow me at https://www.instagram.com/aschwer/.
