It may not dawn on you that Joyce Cloutman has formed these polymer art dolls over bottles. They’re not the kind of bottles we’re used to seeing covered with polymer patterns. These blissful sisters cradle simple treasures in their hands.

Joyce is teaching this 2-day Bella Dona class at All Dolls Are Art (ADAA) in July in Austin, Texas.

In an interview Joyce talks about how important it has been to her to get together with friends and guild mates. Prompted by a magazine article she stumbled into sculpting and she hasn’t looked back.

      I have long admired Joyce’s creativeness and been impressed with her talent for sculpting with clay. These two charming art dolls attest to both. They are wonderful.

        Wonderful to see Joyce’s work featured here. And she herself is as warm and generous and full of creative energy as her dolls appear to be. Lovely.
