My name is Maya Schippl and I am an fulltime artist, living in Germany. 
Sculpting is my passion! 
I always loved to paint and create and I always loved "tiny things".  

So it was just a matter of time until I started to sculpt miniatures. 
My original OOAK sculptures are handmade and unique creations.  
I use high qualitiy clays and paints. Each sculpture is worked over a strong wire armature
for strength and to avoid breaking.  For the clothes I use different materials:
Fabrics, natural fibers, 
different papers.. whatever I think that fits. 
The “fur” of my animals is made from fine wool (alpaca & merino), silk or viscose.

I work in different sizes, about 3” to 10” (7-25 cm)but  also in 1:12 scale.  
My micro beings are very tiny...Somewhere under 1 inch (2,5cm).

 

My sculptures are collectors pieces and are not intended for children to play with!
