I make each sculpture completely by hand in my North Carolina studio. I start by rolling a ball of stoneware clay in the palms of my hands, then I give it a little twist to create a lively body shape.
I have been creating friendly clay animals for the wholesale market for over 40 years.
Cindy Pacileo hand shapes each of her 1½” Little Guys from stoneware clay. She adds a burst of personality as she carves each happy face and tilts the head just so. A delicate touch with her glazing brush completes each sculpture.
