These peices of art are Clay Creations of Camille Allen, who lives in Powell River, British Columbia, Canada. She is 25, married with no children yet. She sculpts her miniature and lifesize babies in a large studio in a bright and cheerful heritage building built in 1916. She first learned the art of doll making from her husband's grandmother Clara Allen 5 years ago. Since then she has ventured into miniature sculpting, creating tiny yet amazingly realistic babies in many poses. Her miniature babies have become known all over the world by means of an email forward depicting them as "marzipan babies". However, contrary to popular opinion, they are not made of marzipan. Camille's dolls and sculptures have been exhibited at the Magnum Opus show in New York, as well as featured on the Montel Williams television talk show. Her dolls have sold for over $3000.00 US dollars, and reside in collections all over the world.
