Self-taught sculptor of whimsical animals opens Etsy shop to reach broader audience.

I started sculpting more than 20 years ago. Animals, especially Dogs, tigers & apes, have been among my favorite subjects........I do however create all types of creatures, and enjoy breathing life into each one individually. Through the years, I have shared this love with my musical endeavors, always coming back to ceramic sculpting as my first love. I have sold at outdoor fairs, but finding the right person for the sculpture needs a more diverse place to display my items. The Etsy shop was born when friends encouraged me to branch out and sell my creations online. I love animals in unusual poses, and am always looking for photos of creatures that inspire me to re-create their expressions. Etsy provides the place for me to reach a broader audience.

Welcome to my shop, with it's collection of whimsical, original ceramic animal sculptures. When I see a photo of an animal that makes me smile, I am inspired to "breathe" life into each, as I fashion the clay to a 3D image of each one. I never use molds, and their expressions reflect my own personality. Each piece is unique, and guaranteed to bring a smile to your face. As the animal I am working on speaks to me, it tells me what it should look like, as the clay is formed into a hollow body. It is then fired 2 times in an electric kiln for strength. Some are glazed all over; while others are stained, and noses, eyes, and other areas glazed to stand out. Love is infused into each creature.
