Looking for a desk buddy to keep you company at work, or a little friend to liven up your mantlepiece? This spunky crab by artist Layl McDill is the perfect solution! Made from colorful polymer clay utilizing a millefiore technique, he is sure to brighten your day with his cute smile and brilliant patterning. This little fellow is approximately 5"x2.75"x1.25"
For me making my art helps me keep this magical doorway to wonderment open. I am drawn to imagery that sparks that feeling of unknown and mystery like cupboards, drawers or placing everyday objects in an incongruent setting. I leave you thinking they are but you get to come up with your own reasons why. My technique and materials are also very mysterious. I use primarily polymer clay with the ancient technique of millefiore. Tiny images that cover every surface of my sculptures inevitably make the viewer wonder “How did she do that?” And even though I have been doing it for twenty years it still seems amazing that I can create a tiny picture can be inside a chunk of clay.
