My name is Maya Schippl and I am self-taught 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
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
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!
