Goffin Sculpture

I really like the work of Virginie Goffin, her work is simple and unique, and inspiring too. I always find it irritating that polymer clay artists and sculptors tend to stick to the same thing. Polymer clay is a very versatile medium, but it's often used either for simple fairy dolls, or for sculpting maquettes. Once you've seen one fairy, you've seen them all, so it's cool to find artists exploring the different uses of this new medium.

Virginie's characters are theatrical, with an animated feel, but also look strangely alive. They are detailed, but not overly so, and always have wonderful expressions on their faces!
