I'm a homemaker retired from daycare. I am pagan and have a love of all things spiritual, mystical and mythical. I started playing with clay @ 18 months ago to pass the time and it has turned into an obsession. I cannot sit down and "make" something, the clay has a mind of its own. I just help the figure come to life. I find working with clay very theraputic. I love looking at other people's work. All art inspires me. I feel it's an expression of the soul. I use no molds, other than for the faces. With all my practice my faces aren't getting much better LOL My pieces are entirely made of clay with the exception of fairy wings, which I'm experimenting with. I use Super Sculpey and then hand paint the piece with acrylic paints.
