"Born To Love Him"

Still Experimenting With Figurative Paperclay. 

I'm Still Learning ~ Still Adjusting To The Way Paperclay Reacts To Touch And Movement.

How Not To Expect One Thing When The Clay Tells Me Something Else.

And I Know It Sounds Odd, But While Molding And Pushing Each Shape Into Place I Gently Ask Each Figure To Show Me How They Want To Look.

I Promise Y'all I Hear Their Tiny Lit'l Voices With My Heart, Just Like When I Hear The Characters I Paint Onto Canvas.  This New One Actually Told Me She'd Like This Particular Styled Headpiece. 


Without A Plan Or Blueprint, The Headpiece Eventually Appeared.  I Simply Moved The Clay Around And Stepped Back To See What Had Come Together.

I Will Be Soldering Her Onto A Lovely Crystal Candlestick.  Of The Three Figures I've Created So Far, I Believe Her's Is The Sweetest Face Of All.

Sending Y'all Some Love And Sunshine,

Postscript:  I'm Linking Today With Sweet Jennifer For  Sneak Peek Friday ~ Friends, Drop Over And Take A Look At The Wonderful Work Offered By Some Of The Sweetest Artists In Blogland.

Love, love, love it Terri! I just love how you are able to sculpt such amazing faces. They are so beautiful! So happy you shared with us today 'in the studio'! :)

These are just gorgeous - how tall is she? I guess I am wondering how much paperclay one of these might take!?

"The Farmer's Wife" also shared paperclay dolls today, and that has me wondering if you are taking the same class!
