About netherworldoddities

Sales 866
On Etsy since 2014

Unique, weird and disturbing art, & oddities found here.

Netherworld oddities came about simply as a side effect of my amusement in oddities and an artistic experiment. The idea came to me to sculpt something totally bizarre and float it in a jar as a conversation piece for my husband's office. After seeing the creature, he reluctantly placed it on his desk. To this day it repulses his coworkers.

As a result of the disgusted expressions and shocking "double takes" my first few creations received, I began creating more bizarre sculptures. The stranger, the better! I am very amused by the reactions that my art creates, especially when people ask how something so creepy could have possibly come from such a sweet, quiet girl.
So... this sweet, quiet girl is none other than myself: Pamela Contreras. I am an artist and professional photographer, I recently have decided to move on from the Photography business and spend a little more time sculpting and loving my husband of 18 years and my 2 kids, aged 15 and 18. (who are also very disturbed by my art)

My sculptures are primarily made using polymer clay, which can be difficult and tricky to work with, but I have a lot of time and patience. I start with an idea, usually inspired by my imagination. To begin most sculptures, I design a metal armature base. This is the foundation to build the clay around and it strengthens the entire piece. I then build up the clay into the desired form and sculpt the details. This can be a long process normally ranging from 3-20 hours depending on the size and details involved in the piece. Everything is completely handmade, several of my items are now made from molds, these molds were also handmade by me and created by using original artwork that was hand-sculpted by myself. Rooting hair and baking the clay comes next and then the process of painting. my processes can be seen on my blog at: http://netherworldoddities.blogspot.com/

Most of my creations are One Of A Kind sculptures.
If you have an idea of something you would like but can't find anywhere, I probably can make it for you. I have made a lot of custom orders based on characters and creatures from favorite movies and books. If you can imagine it, I can make it for you...

So this is my shop, I hope you are as amused as I am. I will continue to disturb the public with my bizarre art. Thanks for visiting.

Additional policies and FAQs
Due to the hand made nature of my items, the actual item you receive may not look exactly like the one in the listing photo, but will be very similar. My items are completely handmade and one of a kind, meaning that none of them are exactly the same and they may not be perfect as with any hand made work of art.

Also, please make sure to not the amount of time that it will take for your order to be made, processed and shipped before placing your order. Many of my items are made after the order is placed and can take weeks to complete before they are ready to ship. People always tell me that they are worth the wait.

Please note that if your item comes in a jar, your jar may vary due to the availability of that specific jar. I use a lot of found items and One of a Kind pieces.
Thanks for your understanding.
