This is the first sculpture I tried. My sister Trese introduced me topolymer clay a few summers ago and I've been inspired to make "dolls". Her hair reminds me of croisants, so maybe she's French?
"Pup-pup" was made for ourBen. He adores dogs and this one looks a little like our Pup, Charlston Chew, it is unfinished.
Mermaid is my favorite so far (mermaid has been sold). I had a lot of fun creating her and was inspired by my brother Troy Howell's art in Mermaid Tales From Around the World (Mary Pope Osborne ~ author) and Lizbeth Zwerger's art too. I used shells, from Maine, in her hair. Queen of Hearts was made for a challenge on Cloth and Clay Dolls (ning site). This is the first time I've sewed clothes for a doll. You can see heron Cloth and Clay Dolls site. Owl was inspired by a visit of an owl to my brother's home last spring. It is also made for my daddy, (passed on to glory in April of '97) who loved birds. I continue to work with clay and have made others that I will eventually post here. All are one of a kind (OOAK) and are available to purchase, if you are interested. Feel free to email me at:firstname.lastname@example.org
