TEA SPROUTS SCULPTURES • Andrea Sanchez


Andrea Sanchéz is a polymer clay artist from Spain. “I was always a daydreamer as a child, I used to imagine magical creatures around me at all times. I wanted them to become real but I didn’t think it was possible back then. It wasn’t until I discovered the Art doll world and polymer clay material and realised I could, actually, bring all those creatures to life,” she says.




For creating this project Angela got inspired by a moment with her mum. “One day, my mum was making tea and it just hit me,” she explains. Later her Tea Sprouts little sculptures were born! Would you like to create one, too? Now it's your time!
