What a lovely and talented young lady! She should be so proud of her work. I love the living room furniture and all the furniture, windows and doors that she made with clay and all the little details she has added to make her house look so 'homey'. It is really wonderful!

Samantha's skill to take a page out of a book and transfer the concept into a clay 'picture' just blew me away! She has done such a great job and her work is truly impressive! I've been claying for almost 15 years and I can't do what she does!

Sending hugs to an amazing and creative young lady!

Somehow I managed to lose the original post, so am tacking this on as if it were a reply to Luny's post! I loved seeing all those miniatures, too. Way to go, Samantha! I never tire of looking at miniatures and can just imagine how much fun it was for you to make them. I would love to see your own comments about some of the things you make and how you overcame any problem pieces. You are a talented girl. Keep up the good work! Jan Sep 17, 2010 5:28 am Garie Sim

I am always happy and proud when the kids are independent and confident doing their own clay creation.
Thanks,
Regards,
Garie

Thanks Dorothy, It's a great feeling to see all the children that I have taught, growing up with their own individual creative skill.

what can I say Garie, she is an amazing artist. You thought her well and then her own talent took over. You should be so proud of her as I am sure you are. Thanks so much for sharing. I just love to see what your kids are doing. I took a look at the smallest minis and was amazed again. Awesome work.

Thanks again,Garie

Hi Linda, Thanks, teaching children learning clay arts is like teaching them how to ride a bicycle. You hold the bicycle and guide them to cycle, as they starts to paddle you released the hold on the bicycle and ran after them paddling, sometime they might fall or loose their balance, but after a few try they will be more confident to cycle.
The more the children built their clay skill, the better the confidence they will instill
Regards,
Garie

Konichiwa!  Wow.  That is wonderful.  Such a long hard process and she stuck with it until completed.  That is quite exceptional.  Love the dolls, too!

After seeing what she made I am going to make sure my grandchildren get more clay for Christmas and show them what she did with it.  Should inspire them.

Oh how fun, Garie.

My daughter has an unfinished Victorian Dollhouse, and we'd talked about actually getting it DONE and making clay furniture for it. Your friend's pictures are inspiring, and I'll forward the link to my daughter so she can see them.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Cat, Yes it is fun, sometime you can use a polymer clay to repair or replace broken doll house furniture.
My student have been playing with polymer clay for more than 8 years, she wishes to join our workshop for a long time and her fees remain the same as it was since she started with us.
Thanks,
regards,
garie

Thanks, Garie.  Your work with the kids has totally inspired me to do what I can to encourage them to play with the clay.  I used play doh for my own children.  They made everything they could think of out of it.  Those were such fun times.

Hi, Pepper, Unfortunately Play Doh doesn't last, for the kids to reflect on their past works or happy childhood and improve on their new clay design.
Thanks,

Garie

Yes Anita, She's got the passion in her clay works, I'm proud of her, that we taught her well, she not only learned from me but, my wife and my daughter too.
She will do even better as she continue to create with PC and already getting some commission work for her to do as a reward.

Garie

My children now have children of their own so that type of clay was my best option.  Now I can buy my grandchildren the premo and have them make works that will last, as you say, forever in their lives.  Thanks for reminding me to offer this to them.
