This is amazing work! So gorgeous!! I would love to make one but I live in the US (too far to attend a workshop). I have searched online for tutorials but I can't find any. :( Do you carve holes in the styrofoam ball to create the brighter areas of light and for the light to go into the towers?

Thank you so much, but right now I do not take commissions. My art teacher does though, but I do think she charges a little more for her lamps. You should check her site: www.droomwerelden.nl for more information.

Thank you so much, but at the moment I do not take commissions. Right now between work and looking after my 2 lovely girls I just haven't enough time. My art teacher does take commissions though (she makes these for a living) and she teaches workshops where you can learn how to make one yourself (I saw you're from Germany - if it's not too far you could do a weekend workshop). Check her website: www.droomwerelden.nl for more information and inspiration.

your whole gallery is fantastic! This is made of paper clay? It doesn't burn? I cant even imagine how you made this...it is brilliant.

bgerr Featured By Owner May 26, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Thank you so much for your nice comment! This is indeed made of paperclay, but the whole thing is constructed on a styrofoam ball and toilet paper rolls. The light is a LED light, which doesn't get hot. Otherwise it would burn and the the styrofoam would melt. I saw in your gallery you can handle your clay (great work!), you could make this yourself quite easily.

After I posted this I bought some paper clay.
Thank you for sharing how you made it.
I Love working with it. I was so tired of using sculpty.

I work a lot and it is great that I can make a figure and put it away for awhile till I can get back to it.

I have been using food coloring and alcohol ink to stain it and I love the organic look it gives &  it takes paint like a dream.
I can make my little people look like they have been carved out of stone. Way cool.

I have also been using it on small glass bottles to make funny faces, like the primitive folk art jugs but sweeter looking.

Some day I will actually take / post photos of my new little people and robots so you can see what you started because you were kind enough to take the time to reply.

You really opened a creative door for me.
Have a good one.

Hi Alice,
That's so good to hear! That was almost exactly how I felt when I got introduced to paperclay. I always used fimo and sculpey and when I did the lamp workshop I got totally hooked on paperclay. My work changed entirely. Now after almost a year of not touching the polymers I have started a project in sculpey again. I'm really curious as to what you've made. Send me a note when you upload some pics?
Grtz,
Barbara

Thank you for you nice comment! For now I do not sell items- I mostly just give 'm away to friends and family. It's too much fun just making them. And when I take a commission I just charge for the materials.

Hi, saw you're from Belgium - perhaps not too far from where I live. If you'd like to learn how to make one yourself (it's actually not that hard) you could do a workshop with my art teacher. Check her site: www.droomwerelden.nl.
