Salt dough collection

  • Ana Maria Pasescu Stewart

Since I was about 4 I remember playing with what was around me either at home in Bucharest or on my Grandmother’s farm. Romanian children in the 80’s played with really basic things. We played with dolls and toys made from vegetables, fruit, bread and clay.The bread sculptures are really a continuation of this tradition of which Im still experimenting with. I made a few loafs of bread to begin with and got totally hooked once I began sculpting with leftover dough. I began to sculpt functional objects that I needed around the home such as candle holders and egg cups. I have used a slightly altered salt dough recipe to make all the items last for as long as I need them. The collection is constantly growing!
