Lady Artisan
Lady Artisan focuses on two main themes: sculpting and ancient history. She likes sculpting figures, characters she's made up, because it gives her the opportunity to explore who they are, what they’re like, and why they’re here. Ancient art, writing, and cultural themes have captured her imagination since I was very young. she works in mixed media, mainly polymer clay.

Carol S. Zilliacus
Carol is making Polymer PaintingShe cut or tear repeated shapes out of the blended sheet of clay. she either replaced these on the original sheet or I place them on another one. Next she put the new sheet through a wide pasta machine or an
intaglio printing press. This causes the patterns to be stretched and distorted. Next she draw designs on the wet clay & cure it. When it has cooled, she apply acrylic paint. Lastly she wipes it off to achieve an embossed effect.
