“I put my heart and my soul into my work and have lost my mind in the process.” ~ Vincent Van Gogh
I begin the process by creating a traditional clay sculpture, and after firing the figure I then apply the polymer clay mosaic design, tile by tile. Next is finalizing the sculpture, fire again (occasionally multiple times), then go through a 10-12 step sanding and buffing process – all by hand and up to a 12,000 grit. Each finished piece represents many hours of work.
