Octopus-Layl McDill

  • This eight-armed fella is just waiting for a new place to call home! Crafted from polymer clay with a bright and zany millefiore patterning technique, this is no ordinary octopus. With his bright colors and undeniable charm, this little deep-sea critter is sure to add a touch of fancy to any space. Approximately 4.5"x4.5"x2.5"

  • 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.
