JUST ANOTHER DAY IN THE OFFICE


huge brown Hawk in the yard today
he perched there for a long time
I see him often, but never long enough to get a picture
Just one of the wonderful things I see in Central Florida
when working in my outdoor 
studio

she has to be perfect for mold set-up

no wings yet

for awhile

NEW SCULPTS


two new sculpts for mold making
one for porcelain and the other for Flumo
now much sanding drilling
and tweaking
after making almost twenty mold sets
time to get serious and make the 
perfect doll

OUT WITH THE OLD


here sits my latest Flumo doll
still not right
sketched up a new doll
tossed almost all of my handmade molds
still trying to get the perfect slip poured doll
good thing I'm obsessed
and enjoy the challenge of making plaster molds


first doll I ever made with a center section
paper clay BJD
Sugar Plum Ballerina
