My mother didn't have porcelain dolls as a child but instead had composition ones (I'll explain composition later and why we picked porcelain).
Porcelain is a natural clay so I could say I am getting grounded in my earth energy as I work through a character. I love the magic of porcelain as it shrinks smaller and smaller - going from the sculpting to the finished piece. There is a timelessness to porcelain that has been handed down through history from the Ming Dynasty to the porcelain pieces of my characters that connects me to the Ages.
Why this page?
I am sure that every artist, whether they be a writer, actor, painter, sculptor, crafter, hobbyist, etc., has been asked - "Where do you get your inspirations?"
