Last weekend I had the pleasure of seeing my friend Terry Stone again, catching a glimpse of her creative process and viewing her most recent work.
You may remember when I first featured Terry's work -- almost two years ago.
All of the Santas, elves and fairies in those photos were created by Terry.
While her work has always been driven by fantasy and her wonderful imagination,
these days she's working from fairy-tale characters as well.
Just imagine the negotiations between the frog and this princess.
I love the character she gives her dolls' clay faces, but she doesn't stop there. Each of her figures is dressed either in antique clothing and shoes or clothing made from vintage fabric.
Every little detail is thought out.
Sweet Puck's face.
Gosh, I love her face.
We came home with two of Terry's figures. Carolyn adopted this precious fairy -- her first doll, even though she introduced me to this incredible artist years ago . . .
and my fairy godmother, based on Terry's own grandmother.
While I'm no fairy godmother, I am thrilled to be a memaw and delighted to add Terry's likeness of her own grandmother to my growing collection of her work!
This is the beginning stage of something I'm working on.
