About

Where a picture comes to life....

Hello...
I'm Sharie Dodson
I have always been a craftier I started when I was about 5 to 7 years old.... When I was 9 my sister taught me to crochet and that is still my passion in front of the TV... I have always loved making things that are personal to other people so that they will have a keepsake memory forever.....

In 2006 I discovered.....clay.....I love it!! When I started with clay one afternoon I had a picture of my dad so I made a 12 inch clay figure of him... (The best thing was that!!! Everyone new who it was without me telling them!!)... So I had to do something that I never saw before and that's how my clay portrait's were discovered....

I did a clay portrait of my mom and dad from when I was a little girl....which every one loved... https://www.etsy.com/listing/66065214/custom-3-d-clay-portrait-jim-darlene
So that same year I attended a local craft show in which I displayed the same portrait and a man yelled.....I know the man in your portrait! (It turned out he was a co-worker of my dad's 30 years prior)

When a person sends me a picture I study it for a long time to see if I can do it or not...... Because sometimes I look at a picture and have
NO IDEA HOW I'M GOING TO DO IT!!

There not as easy as you would think when you start putting them together... I start with the face that is about 2-3 hours and it has to go in the oven for an hour then it has to cool for another hour. Then I start the shirt and then it goes back into the oven and then it has to cool some more and then I just keep repeating the clay the oven and cooling until its all done.......

The glasses are made with real glass that I actual have to cut myself and sand to get the shapes I need.
Sometimes they want extras in the picture like glitter and gems or something silly and fun......
But that's what makes each one so unique and special......
