Pies & cake

Have had some fun doing a couple of food related pieces - as I've had less time for that these past few weeks.
Chose to make some mini 'apple pies' and a simple, elegant cake with roses. The apple pies are in a different style than what I'd usually make - these foods that are shaped into 'food' in real life, often tend to look odd in miniature.. Same with those amazing real life fondant cakes that look like handbags, high heels and other scenes; they just don't make as much sense in miniature. Nonetheless I couldn't help myself when I saw a picture of some small portion sized, apple shaped apple pies.

I know I've posted a lot about the ceramics, but I can't help it. I am just as much in love with making and using them now as I was the first time I made a batch - if not more :)

My most recent miniature doll - though this one isn't quite 1:12th scale; I made her a bit taller (a couple of cm), just to be able to have more fun with the details :) I do think I'll make future portrait dolls 1:12th scale though.

This collage is an example of what I'm looking at when sculpting these dolls. When making the animated characters I usually don't have more than 5-6 pictures, but for an 'actual person' there are going to be more details, and so you really want to be able to see the face from all angles.
I had a hard time finding a proper picture of Maleficent from the front, which is why I have 2 pictures of 'Angelina' on the right.
