These are wonderful! They will look great "planted" in a flower bed under a large tree in my yard. It's always so fun to have unique, creative items that you don't see everywhere! Teresa does beautiful work...

Beutiful birdbath. I love it! And the smart three pronged bottom makes it very sturdy. Thank you!

About

Little Clay Animals to Make You Smile

I have pursued many artistic endeavors in my life, from pen & ink drawing to woodturning to metal sculpture. Most of all, I enjoy making things with my hands, especially sculptural pieces. The medium of my current fascination is polymer clay.

I had experimented with polymer clay many years ago, and recently re-discovered it in a box I found in storage. I made little clay versions of my pet dogs and chickens, and found the process very fulfilling and fun. I began making pet sculptures for friends and coworkers, and also making little sculptures of all the animals I love, and now here they are on Etsy!

My process begins by finding reference pictures of the animal I'm interested in sculpting. I blend various colors of clay to get just the right color for each piece. Unlike many polymer clay sculptors, I do not paint my pieces. I like the challenge of figuring out how to make each animal's subtle markings and features using only the clay. It is a tedious process, working under a lighted magnifying lens, to carefully add the detail colors without contaminating the other colors. Most of my pieces are left with their natural finish, without any sealer. However, some shiny animals like fish may get a satin varnish applied.

Thanks for visiting my shop, and I hope you enjoy my little friends as much as I enjoy making them!
