Sculpture

Paper Clay is another medium that I work with, I’ve been creating theme Christmas trees for the Concord Museum for many years.  Each tree is designed to illustrate a famous children’s book.  I sculpt the characters and try to “tell” the story on the holiday tree.  See concordmuseum.org for the details of this exhibit.
