For the last several years I’ve been preoccupied with dolls: I see them as a long under appreciated art form with virtually unlimited expressive possibilities. I’m inspired by traditional world art figures (kachina, bochia, nkisi, namchi, shadow puppets, etc.) while working to push the boundaries of what a “doll” is as far as my imagination and skills will take it.
These are not comforting toys; they can be challenging and defiant, disturbing and enchanting, irrational and frightening, beautiful and sad. They have stories they yearn to tell, and they hold secrets they will never give up. I like to think of dolls as spirit vessels and the making of a doll a kind of offering or invitation. It’s always a collaboration between me and whatever spirit comes forward.shainerin.wordpress.com

Inspired by the Gothic interiors of now-closed Catholic churches he visited throughout Philadelphia, Adam Wallacavage channeled his fascination with chandeliers by creating Jules Verne-inspired lighting for the dining room in his Victorian brownstone.
To construct these octopus sculptures, Wallacavage taught himself the traditional techniques of ornamental plastering, which includes large-cast plaster work and hand-sculpted pieces from epoxy-clay. Those initial sculptures inspired Wallacavage to continue to experiment in form, color, and technique, developing his own unique glazes and application technique to give his pieces a unique vibrant shimmer.
Recently, Wallacavage has added his love of kitsch to his sculptures. Casts of cartoon bunnies and elephants, Hello Kitty heads, and vintage toys are incorporated into his pieces, which are then covered in bright shades such as bubble-gum pink and mint green. The resulting sculptures reflect his varied aesthetic interests, ranging from 16th Century Baroque opulence to 1940s Americana. ~ Jonathan Levine GalleryExplore More ...

The home of the weird and unusual creatures from the imagination of sculptor Pete Simpson.
I trained as a ceramacist but have been working with mixed media for the last ten year as it gives me more flexibility. I've always been interested in fantasy creatures ever since discovering the work of Brian Froud over 25 years ago.
All of the sculptures are mixed media, usually a wire and wood armature with card and papier mache bodies. Faces, hands and feet are from a mixture of fimo and modelling clay.impsandthings.blogspot.com
