This is why I was so taken with the work of Shary Boyle who has created, in porcelain, some of the most amazing sculpted figures trimmed in lace. In fact some of Shary's "people" are actually dressed in real lace that has been dipped in porcelain and applied to the figure.
The artist's figures at first resembled Royal Doulton figurines; but with more texture and detail. The hands, for example, all had six fingers. Then Shary moved away from the conventional to the more expressive.
Dream, create, sculpt, and live in lace!!
