Spotlight on CP artist Guilherme Pires

Guilherme Pires is a clay artist from Brazil who creates the cutest clown figures and other clever characters.  Making his own cold porcelain and using some simple tools, wire, foam and a lot of imagination, he comes up with some very unique art dolls he calls 'guibonecos'.    Some have very sweet faces, some are funny and some are quite strange.  LOL   Visit his blog at

In the following 3 videos, he shares with us how it's done.    Quite the production line he has going in these videos! *sigh*   He accomplishes so much in one day!!

In the first video, he makes the cold porcelain and takes it into his modeling room where he creates a series of heads and models the arms, hands and big feet for his clowns.

In the second video, he assembles all the pieces with wire and foam and paints the adorable clown faces.

The last video shows his creative costuming, wigging and finishing.

  1. Thanks so much for spotlighting Guilherme Pires,I was very inspired by his fantastic art and was able to get him to answer my emails, he is a very giving individual as well as being a talented artist!!! He sent me the recipe for the cold porcelain he uses, unfortunately there is a bit of a confusion on my part on the exact
    materials he uses. His work with this clay is just too amazing!!!!

  2. O seu trabalho é MARAVILHOSO!!! Parabéns!!!
