Babushka & Geese

This little old lady... There’s a story to how she became a geese herder. I started sculpting her with the intent that she be similar to the lady that grows flowers near my parents. However, as soon as I added her arms, she asked if she could be leading an animal with a rope. She couldn’t decide which animal she wanted so I gave her a stick to hold while she baked, that way we could decide later. Well, she grew rather fond of her stick, so she asked me if she could just herd geese. I thought that would be nice. She is happy with her geese, and is in the process of adding to her farm. What other animals will she look after? A goat? Alpacas, a cow, a sheep? We shall see

Baby Bullet Alpaca

The friendliest of my parents alpacas is one named Bullet. He came to their farm when he was a few years old, but this is what I imagine he looked liked as a cria.

Nanny Magnet

One day, I went out to the studio/barn to take photos of two of my alpaca sculptures, inspired by two of my moms alpacas (Envy & Bullet). I set them up on the fence outside of the barn, and the real alpacas came over to investigate, so I got them in some of my shots. The next day I was sorting through all my photos, one of which was a perfect face shot of moms real alpaca Nanny McPhee (that’s her name because she has two big crooked lower front teeth that stick out). I had a lot of varying caramel colored pieces of clay, sitting next to my computer, all from me trying to mix the perfect color for a cat and a skin tone.. So, I decided to try and make Nanny McPhee out of that clay and this was the result.
