OOAK Puppy Dog Sculpture

Hello everyone,
Here is my Grandmother's 90th birthday present! She loves her dog Jakey. And she loves this sculpt!! I sculpted him from a blend of colored sculpy over wire armature and used black beads for eyes. He is painted with acrylic paints. Measures about 4 inches. This is my first attempt at creating a dog in clay. I had fun and look forward to my next puppy creation!

Thanks for looking :)

OOAK baby Girl Hand sculpted art doll new dress

This new outfit just arrived today and it seems to fit this baby perfectly :) I still have to add pellets and more filling. She is very floppy. The dress set was beautifully made by e bayer davoncreations.

I love it so much !!!

Baby girl is my 110th creation.

Now she needs a name... She was born In February. Doll measures about 9 inches and has glass eyes and real eyelashes. A little while ago I added more clay to her legs making them very chubby. They were too small, I constantly change limbs on my dolls. The proportion is not perfect but the tights fit nicely :)
Blessings, Kat

ooak Baby mermaid hand sculpted wip

I am creating these mer-babies for my nieces Emily and Kaylee. I am almost finished and two more to complete. Each one is hand sculpted and painted.

Their head bands were fun to make and include a birthstone. I twisted wire, shells, ribbon and stones or beads... I love the simplicity! I made these Mermaid dolls for girls ages 5- 13 and they all love them!
I plan on adding a few more details like colored sand on the shells etc.... They will be finished soon. I hope you enjoy looking :)

Blessings, Kat

They all have the same expression :) I will try to work on different looks for the next series :)

Baby Fairy Base OOAK hand made w.i.p.

Hello :)
I am almost finished with my fairy's base! A few more details and it will be done. I will be adding a clear coat. I am also going to add some sparkle and a few beads to the ground and flowers. I still have to decide where the leaves will be attached to the base. At this point the little flowers in the front are the only ones glued in place. So many options...
I love the colors on this. I felt like a child creating this one :)

ooak Baby mermaid hand sculpted wip

Hello everyone, I am working on a sea horse to go with my sleeping mer-baby. I am having fun creating this little pair! The sea horse is made with a mix of color clay and painted, a few more details and a base and she will be done. I have to decide if I want to use clay for hair or mohair, like the other one shown. This base is decorated with a crab and I am adding clay around the edge to represent seaweed.
Hope you have a great week! Blessings :)

My Son's poem about me :) Catherine

Acrostic Poem

Caring about others

Artistic in every way

Thoughtful about all work

Hard worker at everything

Earning everything by hard work

Reaching for the stars

Intelligent in different ways

Never quitting at anything

Exactly Perfect for me

By Chris Kelly 13 years old

This is one of five poems my son wrote for an assignment. I really never knew what he thought of me until I read this :)

A drive through the Valley

I am so inspired by nature and fortunate to live close to the Brandywine Valley. Beautiful hills and valleys have motivated me since I was a child and my father would drive through this lovely country on Sunday after going to Church. This day I took my camera! Blessings
