Group Info

Welcome to #feetofclay!

We are a group of sculptors who mold things into other things! Polymer, sculpey, bread dough, marble, what have you. If it's three-dimensional and and you used your hands to make it, you belong here, to share your wares with others.

What does the name mean? Disney Legend Mary Blair was famously quoted for saying that no work of art can be perfect, and one of her Easter Eggs displaying this theory is the mystical five-legged goat on a huge mural at Disney's Contemporary Resort in Florida. Having "feet of clay" is a slight nod to that philosophy, and according to thefreedictionary.com, "if you say that someone you admire has feet of clay, you mean they have hidden faults. 'Some of the greatest geniuses in history had feet of clay.'"

So, no, Patrick Stewart probably isn't going to look at my clay sculpture of Jean-Luc Picard and wonder if he's looking in a mirror, but it was fun to make, and making things makes me happy.

If you feel the same way, please join this group and spread the awesome sculptures to the community!

About Us!

Welcome to #feetofclay!

We are a group of sculptors who mold things into other things! Polymer, sculpey, bread dough, marble, what have you. If it's three-dimensional and and you used your hands to make it, you belong here, to share your wares with others.

We have only a few rules here!
  • It must be something made into something else! Clay made into a sculpture, dough made into a cake, pumpkin made into an jack-o-lantern. Go wild!
  • We do not accept several different deviations of the same object, just at different angles. Please submit the best deviation OR a larger deviation mural of different angles. Subsequent submissions will not be approved.

Hallo, all!

iwantcandy2 and TheBugKing have done a great job as co-founders, contributing great works of clay art, but I thought it was time to introduce a few new faces into the ranks.

If you'd like to be considered for the position, please leave a comment below as to what you think you could bring to the group!

Your duties would include:
  • Approving submissions (and making sure they follow our loose guidelines)
  • Finding clay works by others and submitting them for approval by the artist
  • Occasionally writing clay-related blogs about techniques or art features

All are welcome to apply, and I can't do this alone! Join today!
