Stephanie's Creations - Bespoke mixed media sculptures for home and garden

Setting the Scene

I live and work from my little cottage nestled at the bottom of the beautiful South Shropshire Hills on the border of Wales and England. My farmhouse kitchen table is like my old friend; it's served as a wonderful place to bring the family together, hosted friends, and shared memories both happy, sad and bittersweet through the years. Now it boldly resides in my work room (aka kitchen), and the energy from it continues as it currently supports layers of paint, paverpol, drill holes, more memories and the ever evolving "birthing" of my sculptures. It's a great place to work, evoke memories and emotions, inspire .... and just make the space to enjoy the occasional cuppa (or a glass) with friends and family

What I Do

I make emotive mixed media sculptures using wire, foil and fabric dipped into a weatherproof textile hardener called Paverpol. They are suitable for home and garden.* Paverpol is an environmentally safe product to use, and is safe for all ages which makes it an ideal medium for running workshops.
I use recycled fabrics, old t-shirts, dresses, jeans as much as possible for dressing many of my figures and have a stash of beautiful batiks and other cotton fabrics from my previous life of textile design. So long as the fabrics are natural ie cotton, silk, wool etc, they take well to paverpol and therefore I can incorporate customers old dresses, children's wear when making bespoke pieces to bring their own pieces to life and evoke their own memories.
All my pieces evolve to have their own unique spirit; - this keeps the joy of making them alive and exciting. I endeavour to capture movement, dynamics, and an emotional response to my work; the tenderness between a mother and baby, or between two lovers; the dynamics of a dancing couple, the joy and energy of childhood.
I'm inspired by memories, as well as having a love of people watching - noting the dynamics, body languages and actions of people.
Sometimes (quite often in my dreams) an idea will pop into my head and then off I go into creating something new and exciting.
My sculptures make great gifts for those special occasions such as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, births, Christenings or just because.

Purchasing

All items on my Etsy shop state whether they are presently available or made to order. I endeavour to post any available sculptures within 3 days. Depending on the complexity of an order to make, it can take from 1-6 weeks.
I receive many requests for bespoke commissions which I am happy to discuss and hopefully fulfill. October on wards gets a bit manic with orders for Christmas so if you have an idea, then please allow plenty of time, particularly if they are to be sent abroad!


So that's it for now. I hope you enjoy perusing my shop, I'm here if you want to ask any questions and in the meantime look after yourselves, stay safe, healthy and positive!
Lots of love to you all ..... xx

* Garden sculptures must be coated with varnish and left for a couple of weeks to cure before being placed outside. Once prepared, garden sculptures should last through all weathers and for many years. If you are ordering a sculpture for the garden please could you let me know so I can prepare it accordingly
