Blogs Merged! etc

Hi, I have merged PedroRamirezArt with this blog so all my past posts about ceramics and bronze can be found here, also I deleted the mesmeric mice blog, and the beautifulclayflowers blog to sort of consolidate everything... it can all be here when I think about it, even the mice, shit  its my blog, no boundaries! 

Guatemala calls!

I am just now (Four months later) opening my little comfort dolls (I know they are called worry/trouble dolls but I am so very careful not to create negative affirmations that I will refer to them as comfort dolls, for that is what they truly do is provide comfort to the user), and I have noticed that they are exquisite... even more so than little ones i see on hairpins from south america, each one is different and they have inspired me to merge.  I am going to merge the polymer clay figure with the woven tapestry of Guatemala to make a brand new doll-sculpture, very folk art and yet not for actually playing with. I have chosen to go back to Guatemala because I want to pick up where I left off in my discovery of culture and beauty and appreciation of life!

They are cute, though I did not make these, the Maya women in Guatemala did, I am going to use them as inspiration for a sculpture or two very soon.
