Announcement    I am easily inspired - I can draw inspiring energy from life and the earth around me, from my own emerging creations and from a simple comment or expression from someone who sees my creations. So don't hesitate to send me a note - your energy can mean so much.

Most often you will find me deep to my forearms in clay sculpting away or trekking a trail shooting images of nature. While some say it consumes me, I say art moves me and making it is where I want to spend my days.

Beyond creation there is my customer, and you mean a lot and I want you to know it by how I treat you from my art to my customer service, to my shipping and to my followup to making sure you are very pleased with your shopping experience. My reviews speak volumes about me and these very things.

So, come on in to my shop and have a good time and remember to drop me a line.

About

I live to be inspired to create.

My name is Jacob Folger. I am an Artist Sculptor and I live and work in Washington, DC. I have been a professional artist since 1994.

I am a self-taught artist and I consider this a substantial achievement in my life. Most of my creations in sculpture lean towards mythical themes such as fairy related pieces, but I also enjoy sculpting animals and even fine art pieces from time to time. The Art Photography I do is taken from nature and enhanced with color, contrast and light. All of the artworks in my shop are either one of a kind pieces or low volume reproductions from original works.

A big part of my wanting to become an artist was so that I could own art affordably. And as I became a professional artist and began to sell it, I always tried to make my art affordable to the average person. Everyone should be able to own art.

My art studio is in my home in Washington, DC. My work area consumes the dining room which is brightly lit by two large windows. And my creations take up just about every square inch of table and shelf space throughout my home.

Some people might find it surprising that I do most of my sculpting and art photography editing early, early in the morning before the sun even comes up. There is a special creative energy around 3 am each day. I have no trouble waking and am always excited to be starting my work.

A major recent milestone for me was when I became a YouTube Partner with my how to art channel where I teach people through video how to sculpt in clay. I have over 700 how to videos, mostly for the art classes and nearly 10,000 subscribers to my channel so far. And there are well over 1,100,000 views of my videos to date.

I hope you enjoy my shop and my creations.
