i just loooooove blowfishes, over most fishes in the sea:)! they are just the cutest, and the first time i saw one i believed my friend who told me they were actually smiling *g*:)!!! *jumpsaround*... so one day i got really inspired by my shell collection and created this little fellow. maybe in some fantasy imaginary undersea world puffies do look like this:)?

he was soooo much fun to do... i worked with self-dry clay, shells and several varnish colours. he ended up being soooo cute and i am really proud of him:)!!! yeah, he's all happy there swimming around in the sea...:) there's another picture on this gallery that will show more details from several directions and also a pic to help you figure out his actual size.

clay, varnish, shells. (2005/2006)

You keep amazing me, where do you store all those ideas and materials and that most refreshing attitude of just doing whatever comes to your mind. You must be hiding whole worlds inside of you.

:-) Stephanie S. K. Marbach replies: "hehe, yeah, sometimes it spills out and i get surprised myself... sometimes they won’t come out though;-) thanks for your time and comment, dear anad2!"
