These wise little guys are sure to add just the right amount of color, whimsy, and creativity to your collection! Crafted by Minneapolis, Minnesota based artist Layl McDill using polymer clay, they are genuinely unique little pieces. Each one is made using a millefiore technique to achieve a complex and fascinating pattern within the clay--sure to be quite the show-stopper! Each approximately 2.5"x2"x3.25"
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.
