Clay-Mermaid
David Sauri
Artist
United States
I started playing with clay when I was in second grade. Sculpting has been my passion ever since. While other kids were enrolled in sports or afterschool activities, I spent all my free time making small figures in clay. I sculpted my favorite characters from TV, movies, fantasy, and many others from my imagination. The toys that I wanted to play with didn’t always exist, so I would make them for myself. I would become captivated with certain movies and TV shows, and I would sculpt the characters over and over again until they were perfect. Those sculptures began to add up and last time I counted I realized I had done over a thousand of them. I was commissioned to do sculptures for teachers and classmates and I made clay ornaments for friends at Christmas. My sculptures have been on display in the local library and have been featured in the Star Ledger.


Mermaids are my other great passion. Ever since I saw the movies, Splash and The Little Mermaid, I became obsessed with mermaids. From the beginning, whether on paper or in clay, mermaids have swam through the pages of my sketchbook and have perched on clay rocks on my desk waiting for their story to be told. In 2007 I started to come up with my own mermaid characters and began to create the underwater world where they would live. I decided that I wanted to make a picture book about them. Towards this goal, I researched the world of children’s book publishing and continued to sculpt and to write stories about the mermaid world. The goal of this blog is to show mermaid fans a glimpse of this world with the hope that one day my book will be a reality.
