I adore making miniatures... this is my best, although I wasn't able to get the "Perfect" photo... despite the fabulous lens, tripod, and perfect outdoor lighting. I need to invest in some specialty equipment methinks. This little one measures only 1/3'' long. sculpted in polymer with a needle and tiny brush. She is going up for auction tonight on ebay.. so check back later and click on my ebay link to see more pictures.
A few new items for this week...... My Satyr is finished as of this evening, and up for a three day auction on ebay. The old rotting tree in the center of my yard provided the perfect craggy backdrop for a would be goat girl! It is a different style from my usual work.. kind of "ugly cute".. but sometimes it is fun to take a break from the norm. Another fun tidbit.... her horns are fossilized sharks teeth that were found on the banks of the Patapsco River. In her position she sits 3'' tall. Second project in progress is the Lost boys tree house, made of paper mache. It is to be an elaborate depiction of the memorable scene from Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, where hook drops the poison into Peter's medicine. More to follow in the coming weeks.
Back view...... the tree roots cascading over a large boulder.
Hi everyone! i don't know about anyone else, but May is such a magical time for me.......it is getting harder and harder to stay indoors and sculpt, when I have this wonderful view of the woods from my studio window.
Just a few works in progress this week...... Shrinking Alice will be an expo piece. She is only 4'' tall, and still needs a few various details, bottle stopper, drink me tag, base touch ups, and in the background will be a creeping cheshire cat~ furred.
Another just for fun project, a grumpy little satyr girl.. It started by playing around with a lump of clay, no idea in mind really, just wanted to make an ugly face! I never even planned on firing it, but she ended up being kind of cute, and I could see she would make a fun little piece. The horns are fossilized sharks teeth that I picked up while fossil hunting along the potomac river. They have so many fantastic uses! She will be getting posable furry satyr legs and tail. Arms also posable minus the fur. There is this little story running about in my head, but will share that upon completion.
I have two other WIP's in the works... I will share pictures in the next week or two.....
It is so good to finally have a website that I can keep updated! Almost all of my work is now posted in the gallery sections to the left. In the future look for works in progress, available sculptures, upcoming show dates, and most excitingly, tips and tutorials.
I am also pleased to announce that in August 2008, I will accompany the OOAK Guild along with several other talented OOAK artists to the Doll and Teddy Bear expo in Washington DC! Click on the OOAK Guild link on the right sidebar, and you can see some of the various works that are now being completed for the show.
