A Dream House for Baba Yaga

Baba Yaga Gingerbread House polymer clay sculpture by Rachel Weaver

Building A Polymer Clay Gingerbread House

Baba Yaga lives deep in the forest, in a house that walks on chicken feet. This fierce witch has cannibalistic tendencies, with children being a particularly indulgent delight. What better way to lure lost children, than a dream house built of gingerbread and candies?

Painstakingly created piece-by-piece from polymer clay and resin. I built her new house from the walls up, fresh-baked and dripping with traditional white icing.


Viist Baba Yaga at the Mid West Art Prize 2021

My piece embodies a fun and twisted fusion of the Slavic legend of Baba Yaga, with the tale of Hansel and Gretel. Baba Yaga's Dream House is currently on display at the Geraldton Regional Art Gallery as part of the Mid West Art Prize 2021 Exhibition.  The exhibition ends Sunday 30th January 2022, so get down to GRAG to see the varied and inspiring show. Don't forget to place your vote for the People's Choice Award!

My name is Rachel Weaver. An artist inspired by sugar and spice… and things not so nice. Experimenting with polymer clay and mixed media to create the weird ideas that fill my head late at night.
