So Good It Fooled Me

Recently I’ve had an itch to take some type of sculpting class – learn how to throw some clay – or bake a statue.  What’s perked my interest in this art medium recently is the detailed work that some artists are able to achieve.  It looks like it would be fun to take a stab at it – make you appreciate their skill and the realism they are able to reach can make you doubt what you are seeing.

Lisa Lichtenfels creates realistic soft sculptures.  They range from less than 5 inches to life-sized figures.  Her sculptures have been sold to collectors from all over the world.

The sculpture she has on her landing page is so real, I first thought it was the artist and she had a great sense of humor.  I thought that even though I KNEW she was an artist that created life like sculptures.  I just refused to believe it could be anything but an old lady dressed up for a funny photo shoot. (Yeah, I’m on the gullible side in case you’re wondering) Once venturing further into the site, I realized it was one of her many realistic sculptures. In addition to creating these life like aliens, fairies, humans, and gnomes, she photographs her creations with interesting backdrops and sells the prints.
