I used to make these...



I used to make these sculptures. I called them "The Exotic Women of TaTa Island". They are made of Sculpey, so unfortunately, they were rather fragile for their size. I sold them for a while in New Orleans, and did pretty well with them. Then one day, a careless person cutting through the shop just to get from one street to the other ran into my display case and broke all 8 of the sculptures I had on display. It was very upsetting to me, as he had no way to pay for them and not to mention their sentimental value to me. After that, I haven't made another one. It's weird how something like that can have such an effect on me. Anyway...I thought I'd at least show them off a little, for old times sake.

Those probably did very well, especially in New Orleans. I can't imagine how you felt losing them. Sorry that happened to you.

That was an awful thing for him to do. At least you have the memories of them, and the ability to do them again if you so choose.

They're pretty cool looking.

That is so sad, and must have been very upsetting. They are really neat.
