My First Polymer Sculpt - Early '90s
I was going through an old album the other day and came across this image. I had been creating cloth dolls from my own design for a number of years, but wanted to try polymer clay. This piece was sculpted from cernit (head) and fimo (hands). The body was wire, padded and wrapped.
I can still remember how gorgeous I thought she was. Gosh I was proud of this piece and given everything I see wrong with her now ('flat' face, tiny mouth, too wide spaced eyes, large gnarly hands), I still have fond memories of my "first-born".
I named her Niamh, and she went to live with a couple here in Ontario who purchased subsequent pieces from me over the years.
My sister is attempting to clear out my Dad's house in Vancouver and has a large box full of mainly cloth dolls to send to me that I had sent Mom and Dad over the years. I only have a couple of cloth pieces from those years, and I'm looking forward to receiving these.
I love to see pics of the evolution of an artist, so thought I would share my first polymer piece with you.
