Finally have a bit of time to sit down and write about what has been going on in my studio. I have been working on a few new Swedish Gnomes, a new line of “Old Wise Woman” dolls and figures. But what has been taking up most of my studio time is learning how to sculpt faces, hands and feet from polymer clay. Wow, I didn’t think I could have this much fun with sculpting. Lots of hours spent learning and refining. Lots of ripping those poor heads apart and starting all over again.
Here are a few pictures so you can see what I have been up to for the past little while.
This was a special order and the first in the Mummi line. Mummi is an informal Finnish word for grandmother. These dolls and figures represent the Wise Woman in our lives and in ourselves.
Slowly getting the hang of sculpting heads. Lots of refining still to do but having a great time learning this new skill.
And finally one of the new Swedish Gnomes for 2018. These chubby little guys are now available on my website.
Mummi’s will be added in February. Those wonderful dolls will be later this year.
Happy New Year to everyone.
