I found Ginger Markley's sculptures while reading the glaze catalog for local ceramic supply house, Leslie's. Markley's sculptures pop from the pages (as I'm sure they pop from the pedastals) like the characters of children's storybooks. Imaginative and believable enough to create an engaging wonder. I think Tim Burton ought to hire her right away.
Markley's blog and her Etsy, where I just bought one of her little bunny sculptures. Eek! :)
