Here at Outpost 8, you will find:

* OOAK (one of a kind) polymer clay art sculptures and dolls, inspired by horror, steampunk, fantasy, the apocalypse, animals, and sometimes too many episodes of Lost.

They types of sculptures and dolls you will find in my shop are: jointed, stuffed artist bears, soft sewn dolls, articulated, poseable dolls with wire armatures, figurines, miniatures, and solid clay sculptures, sometimes mounted on wooden bases.

My sculptures and dolls are created from Fimo, Sculpey, resin, and many times found and eco-friendly objects and materials, such recycled rabbit fur jackets, naturally found animal teeth, upcycled sari silk ribbon, stone beads, re purposed wooden bases, vintage fabrics, feathers, natural mohair, and tiny watch gears.

* Ready to ship (RTS) and made to order (MTO) jewelry, keychains, and ornaments inspired by a love of video games. I have fond memories of NES and SNES titles as a child, but am constantly finding inspiration in new games as well.

The types of jewelry and accessories you will find in my shop are: necklaces, pendants, lockets, chokers, charms, bottle charms, vials, chains, pins, brooches, stud earrings, post earrings, dangle earrings, asymmetrical earrings, french hooks, gauges, plugs, hangers, adjustable rings, bracelets, charm bracelets, pocket mirror compacts, keychains, keyrings, phone lanyard charms, ornaments, and small wall hangings.

My jewelry is made using polymer clay, resin, mineral oil, and many times, tiny glass bottles and vials.

* Original oil paintings. I am addicted to painting and collecting ACEOs (Art Card Editions and Originals) and many times will have original 2.5x3.5" paintings up for sale. I also occasionally offer larger scale paintings. I adore painting landscapes.

* TTV (Through The Viewfinder) photograph prints. These 5x5" photo prints are taken with a digital camera through the viewfinder of a vintage Argus Seventy-Five Twin Lens Reflex camera. I am drawn to urban exploration, taking photos of broken and decrepit subjects, such as old motel signs and abandoned laundromats, which are accentuated through the Argus' discolored and lint-covered viewfinder.

All items in my shop are handmade by artist Alia Bierwag (that's me!) People have used my items in many ways, including: gifts, birthdays, holidays, home decor, display, fan art collections, shadow boxes, cosplay, decoration, self-expression, XBox 360 gaming, PlayStation gaming, Nintendo gaming, costume, adornment, while playing video games, attending cons (conventions), after organ donation or receipt, for DnD (Dungeons and Dragons), making board games, for terrariums, in gardens, in curio cabinets, hanging from car rear view mirrors, and many more!
