Netherworld oddities came about simply as a side effect of my amusement in oddities and an artistic experiment. The idea came to me to sculpt something totally bizarre and float it in a jar as a conversation piece for my husband's office. After seeing the creature, he reluctantly placed it on his desk. To this day it repulses his coworkers.
So... this sweet, quiet girl is none other than myself: Pamela Contreras. I am an artist and professional photographer, I recently have decided to move on from the Photography business and spend a little more time sculpting and loving my husband of 14 years and my 2 kids, aged 13 and 10. (who are also very disturbed by my art)
If you have an idea of something you would like but can't find anywhere, I probably can make it for you. I have made a lot of custom orders based on characters and creatures from favorite movies and books. If you can imagine it, I can make it for you...

My sculptures are primarily made using polymer clay, which can be difficult and tricky to work with, but I have a lot of time and patience. I start with an idea, usually inspired by my imagination. To begin each sculpture, I design a metal armature base. This is the foundation to build the clay around and it strengthens the entire piece. I then build up the clay into the desired form and sculpt the details. This can be a long process normally ranging from 3-20 hours depending on the size and details involved in the piece. I never use molds, everything is completely handmade.
Rooting hair and baking the clay comes next and then the process of painting. My processes can be seen on my blog at: http://netherworldoddities.blogspot.com/
