How about these two beautiful gals! Back Story; in the South there is always back story..... Above the gorgeous blonde is Kaye Pass Lambert the sculptress who molded & sculpted this amazing terracotta sculpture of my namesake niece; Junior. Kaye won the lottery when she became my roommate in college ~ HA! Actually, I was the lucky one! We met back before the war through our sisters who had met in college & we became fast friends. Lawsey does she know some back story.... I have a few things on her so her lips are sealed..... And as it goes in the South the namesake niece & Kaye's son became friends in college & even went on to law school at the same school. I know, right??? Hard to keep up....
Anywho, I wanted a sculpture of my niece; the ballerina in her tutu. Commissioned Kaye Lambert Sculptress & we went through old photographs. Kaye picked this adorable pose.
This is where it all began, that hunk of clay reminds me of that song He Took a 100 pounds of Clay.... Check out those tools, this is a serious process.
How talented is she??? I mean it, Kaye has got the gift. And check out the profile on that child, the girl can sculpt!
Look at the details. The tutu is so stinking cute & those ballerina slippers are precious!
The neck ruffle & tutu are a beautiful bisque porcelain with an overall terracotta glaze. To die for!
Here are the girls showing off! The Ballerina is strutting her stuff atop a beautiful piece of shell pink marble
that was rescued from the center of the top of my hall bath vanity.
Here they are perched in the resting spot of the sculpture. Don't you love how Kaye's dress goes with all the pink. Totally unplanned, really.
Kaye does custom work & is delightful to work with. Visit her site & you can see for yourself she is one talented lady that I am lucky to call friend & blessed to have in my life. As for the ballerina, she is still obsessed with tutus as seen here
