Please introduce yourself and tell us about your handmade business: I'm Courtney Duzyk of Clumsy Creative Designs. I create hand cut paper artwork.
If you could sit down and talk to any person, living or dead, who would it be and why? I'd love to sit down and talk to Lotte Reiniger. She was a German artist and animator, and her work inspired my film studies and my papercut work as well. She was a pioneer of the craft.
What inspires you? I'm inspired by Pittsburgh and the craft and art scene that continues to grow here. I've met so many amazing artists here. We still have a way to go, but I love what's happening here.
What is your favorite item at Boutique 208 that’s not one of your own and why? I love the cards by John the Craftist, and the hand-knit items from Neighborhood Blonde. It's really hard to choose just one thing, though, because there are some amazing artists at the Boutique!
