Introducing qtCre8ions

Everyone has a childhood dream, what was yours?

When I was 9 years old, I wanted to be a toy designer so that I could bring creativity, imagination and joy to others. I thought it would be a fun and amazing job. Many years later, I’m still a child at heart, but I had almost forgotten about that dream.

When I discovered polymer clay in 2012, that long forgotten dream started to reawaken as I realized I could make cute and unique items with my own two hands and with minimal resources. Little by little, the idea for qtCre8ions started to form in my mind, to the clay in my hands, and finally to the opening of this Etsy shop.


I invite you to visit my shop: to browse my collection of clay stamps.  Each clay stamp is molded with love and etched with care, and customized just for you.

Whether you are looking for a figurine of your favorite animal, a model of your pet, or a 3-D version of a character for your game, qtCre8ions is here to help fulfill that dream.  I hope that every figurine that I create will bring a smile to someone’s lips.

Shaping Life

clay bobblehead
Blue, green, pink, peach, white
rectangular blocks of clay
sitting on your desk
beckoning to come alive.

It’s silent and dark,
the spotlight
is on you
as you peel back
the plastic
and knead the clay
over and over
in your palms
until the clay is soft
and your fingers hurt.

Slowly you shape
the legs, mold the torso,
add the shoes,
check the size,
make sure you’re satisfied.

Add the chest, mold the arms,
ensure it stands upright,
mix some pink, mix some white,
mix some yellow too,
now you have a skin-like peach
that works, that works for you.

Work your fingers, mold the face,
shape the nose, the ears, the eyes,
envision what you had envisioned
in your mind.

Take it, bake it, make it
come to life.  Draw the eyes,
add a smile, dot some hair,
add a spring, he’ll bobble,
glad to be here, glad to be alive.
