Babies That Fit Inside The Palm Of Your Hand By Camille Allen

Posted on Sculpture 82

Canadian artist Camille Allen has a rather unusual hobby and an impressive skill to match it. She handcrafts miniature clay sculptures of newborn babies that can fit inside the palm of your hand.

It’s a skill the 35-year old artist learned from her grandmother-in-law, who was also making baby sculptures, except those were life-size. But when Camille started, she didn’t have enough clay for that, so she made miniature versions: “When I held the first tiny baby sculpture in my hand I fell in love with it. I have been making the miniature babies ever since.

I love creating something that didn’t exist before,” said Camille to Daily Mail. “My favorite part is sculpting their little faces from basically a blank ball of clay.

If you want to hold these cuties in your hand, you can order your tiny baby from the artist’s website.
