In the Gallery

“Souls of the Skunk River” by Deb Scott

It all started with Pete the Pothead. As I built him, he took on a life and personality of his own. From him “Souls of the Skunk River” was born. I have no desire to create perfect people, they don’t exist. I love the relationship I have with my clay souls and sharing them with you. My people are a combination of life experiences, imagination, sights, smells, feelings, and humor. They might be your relative, your neighbor or yourself. Please enjoy getting to know them!
