My witch. Made her in art class. I must confess that I am a bit proud of her. I had such a good time making this witch that I would like to make another some day. Her body is made of papier-mâché, and her face and hands of clay. I had a lot of fun when sewing all her clothes, but my favourite moment was making the little book she is holding. I lay the pages in tea to make them look old and yellow-ish, and there are some 'real' potion recipes in it, written in small handwriting ...

Height: ~35 cm (not life-sized, even if it looks so in the photo!)

Loads of thanks for that! =) And a lot of excuse to all wiccans who became offended because she is so stereotyped. I did'nt mean to hurt anyone. This is just a fairy tale witch from my fantasy, with no claim of looking realistic.

This witch is brilliant, I really like it. I really like her podgy little face ^_^. I like that she is the stereotypical old, pointy hatted witch. I don't know why these Wiccans are offended. I mean, there are countless types of witches, coming from many religions and societies. Besides, I always thought that Wicca grew from Pagan traditions and rituals etc, which has been around for ages... I could be wrong though =)

Well i think she deserves mods choice. and I think the ppl that cant get past their own noses need to see a red couch some...the person that linked this to me is wiccan and has no problem with it other then the looneys that posted above which shes mad at. So ok ill get some bad comments for what i said...big deal. I love it personally 2 its has alot of detail and hard work into it ^_^ and you did a wonderful job. Shrugs* as for sterotypical..sure a little...but you didnt put it here to get told it was...id like to see wiccans sue disney over makeing sterotypical witches through the years LOL

yup, yup! i agree with Little midnight. i'm Wicca too and i think she's awesome. mabey if somebody said "this is my witch, she's Wicca!" it would irritate me but i thing this witch is sooooooooooo cute!

Awesome... If only I had but a fraction of your skill. Heehee! I think she's pretty. n_n

And... 'Wiccan'-people? I doubt you're actually wiccan. Wicca was created in the 1950's, as someone mentioned, by one Gerald Gardner. AS A SECRET RELIGION. Meaning you have to belong to a lineaged coven to be an ACTUAL Wiccan, fluff-balls. 10 Without belonging to one, you only know probably only one-third of the information you need, and most of it's probably not real, anyway.

I wouldn't have mistaken her for Wiccan, I knew all along that Wicca is a more modern religion. Anyways, nice job, you're much better with clay than I could ever hope to be.

People in the comment history claim 'i am a witch' ... Ok.. What makes you a witch? Its all idealism in your heads. Roobish. Science is the foundation of everything leave fantasy for stories! Good sculpture.

Clare-- Wicca is the oldest religion, it just got stamped out for a while because evryone burnt the Wiccans. If you plan to insult us, get your facts straight.

Oh, but it’s certainly a damned good sculpture, not offensive in the slightest. Fairy Tale witches are cool, and you really captured her.. coolness =D I hope you got a good grade for it?

Cool witch! Now burn her... burn her... not really. Ah Wicca, the coffee house religion of Barnes and Noble, Starbucks and emo kids everywhere. As soon as someone shows me a spell that works I will stop laughing at them.

While I do occasionally use magick, I have to agree with WiccansMakeMeGiggle - psychic energy works much better.
No, but seriously, great sculpture!
