The canvas measures 20 inches by 16 inches so it should easily find a spot for display in most rooms. The frame itself is 21 inches by 17 inches and the artist has wired it for hanging.

THE ARTIST’S GENERAL CLAY ARTWORK PROCESSES
The artist begins her clay art process with a block of plain polymer clay. She then hand sculpts each art piece into whatever forms her imagination determines. The artist then bakes the art objects into hardened shapes. After they cool she hand paints each art item with acrylic paints. Depending upon the particular art project, she will then set some of the art items in clear art resin. She varnishes others instead.
