"Carolina" - 2021
I mostly make kinetic, figurative pieces - but occasionally I make small static portraits like this. I like creating these smaller pieces because they let me focus on the face - and all that can be conveyed in a simple expression. I don't have to worry about the person's body, (or anything mechanical), and can just concentrate on developing the character. I really like the way she came out - the face, the colors, her hair.
Her head is sculpted polymer clay, and her clothes were handmade by me. I painted her with acrylics and aged her in my usual way.
The base is a piece of salvaged wood, and the object behind her is a metal trivet.
She measures 6.5" x 5.5" x 3.5" - and sits on a table or shelf.
This piece is signed and dated on the back.

Tom!! My sincere apologies that I have taken so long to post my review. Life gets away from me more often than not! I LOVE my Thomas Twins!! Of course I was first drawn to them visually....but the story of their journey also intrigued me, and I wanted to be a part of their lives...and them of mine. And I can't tell you how well they fit in!! They are very reserved to the world, but I can tell they know what each other is thinking. Their faces tell it all....and tell me much about YOU, their creative creator. Thank you SO MUCH for sharing your amazing talent and imagination with me!! Claire is very pleased as well, that her family has come to stay!!! They all just make me HaPpY!!
Love Claire!!! Just love, love, love her!! The craftsmanship is superb as was the excellent service!! The talent and imagination of Tom Haney is amazing. I so regretted not purchasing the woman who was climbing out of her picture frame that I saw on Etsy some time ago. Hoping to see another like that some day. Also loved the handmade thank you card!! And I would like to thank you, Tom.....for sharing your creative and amazing talent with me!!!! Whimsical artwork just makes me smile and tickles my heart and FaNcY. What more could I girl ask for!!??
Tom is so awesome! I’ve been a huge fan for a while and all of his stuff is so incredible! This is actually the second one of these pieces that I’ve gotten. This one is a gift that I got after buying a different one and was so impressed. Highly recommended artist!!! Tom is too cool⭐️⭐️
