Welcome To Elf Expressions. I hope you enjoy my dolls as much as I Love Making them.
I am a stay at home Mother, House wife and Grand Mother. I have been sculpting for about 6 years now. I never get bored with creating new Characters. I love how each character takes on a life of its own before they even get baked.
I use Polymer and cold porcelain clays when sculpting. I also enjoy going to second hand stores and snagging up “findings” to create scenes with my Characters. I also create miniatures for dollhouse’s and different fun Clay projects to pass the time with my Grand children. Life is never boring when I have a ball of clay in my hand!
Most of my Characters are Elves and Fairies. I am stuck in the Enchanted world of the Wee Folk. I have sold my Dolls to collectors all over the world.. England, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Germany, The Netherlands and The United States.
My inspirations come from many realms. I love the characters created by Wendy Froud in “the Dark Crystal”, several Ooak Artist are an inspiration. I started by watching tutorials on youtube. Sculpting a face here and there and then hands and feet. One day I woke up and went in to make some coffee and my cat had knocked one of my little fairies in a coffee cup and its little legs were all you could see. I liked it! The face was not all that great so I glued it in the cup just as it was. It turned out to be one of my favorite sculpts! From there my head started filling up with ideas. The possibilities with Clay and stuff you find all over the house are endless!
The gals at the Second hand store in town Love it when I walk in. Second hand stores have an endless supply of “findings” for Elves, Trolls and Fairies! Anything an elf or Fairy might pack off for themselves I will buy and bring it home for my next character. It is also a great place to find FABRIC for costuming! Old clothes and Fabric remnants are another treasure I search for.. for costuming.
