vassy homeplace

This is a replica of the Vassy homeplace in Gaffney,South Carolina. Dave and Becky Vassy bought the home and restored it. Dave’s great-grandfather bought the home in 1898. After the restoration they wanted a replica of it as it was originally. Here also are pictures that I used to reproduce it. I use all kinds of old photographs that the customer can find. Also the Vassy’s drew out the floor plan and put numbers on the photo’s that corresponded with detailed instructions on how to do that part of the house. Also click on more and you can see the different sides of the sculpture. I also have pictures of it while it was still wet clay and I was building it.

The Healing Tree

I wanted to make a tree and I think this one turned out very well. It is about 12 inches high and the base is 6 inches wide. I decided it needed something under it and it came to me about the tree in Revelation that says its leaves are for the healing of the nations, so I put children from different countries under it. It took a lot of supports to keep it from cracking and a slow drying time. I have entered it in the Georgia National Fair’s Art Competition.

This sculpture was inspired by my husband and all his old junk he saves. He calls them his treasures. I also put an old Chevy truck under the old junk shed. Everything on this sculpture is made of earthenware clay and fired in a kiln.

Cunningham Hunting Compound - Clay Replica 1

These are clay sculptures of a hunting compound I was commissioned to do. They were built by Steve and Will Cunningham north of Fitzgerald, Georgia. Notice the fridge and camo chairs on the front porch of the cabin. They also built a cookhouse with screen around it. The outhouse was built with the typical half-moon on the door and a real toilet seat inside.
