Pillows Galore!

If you know me up close, you know I have a thing for pillows (and soft, fuzzy things in general :)). And my online nickname "karit ktana" doesn't have anything to do with Japanese weaponry. In Hebrew, it means "small pillow".
For my own private pleasure, and as an inside joke of the family, i draw anthropomorphic pillows.
exhibit A: the name slate we were asked to do in year 1

but being 2D isn't enough for pillows! It does not encompass their whole potential. Thus, i started sculpting pillow figurines out of polymer clay. Here are some latest creations (stationary is placed next to it for scale):

Pillow lady and her pet piggy (yeah we have a thing with piggies too)

and going back to prehistory, their ancient ancestor - the mighty Pillosaurus:

Here displayed are mother Pillosaurus Magnus - and spirited offspring :)

fast forwarding to Victorian times, I'm delighted to present Sir Pillowingtonshireham the First:

A small birthday present for a very blond friend (with the sunny personality to match):

(The white parts are glow-in-the-dark clay, also mixed in with the yellow)

and my largest creation, the first Pillow Pilot (and female, too! check out the silvery ribbon on her pilot hat):


  1. You're getting so much more talented, Maya. I'm so proud of you and the work! Keep going strong! I'm expecting to see your name in a coming Pixar movie!

    Love ya!!


  2. The Victorian one is priceless!!!
