Hello, welcome to Pigott's Playpen! Thank you for taking the time to stop in and take a peek at my babies. My name is Jorja Pigott. I was born in Oklahoma and raised in Texas by my Mom (who I adore!) since I was five. I moved to North Carolina in May of 2000. I am a mother of 3 wonderful boys, and have a beautiful Daughter-in-love and 3 beautiful grandchildren. My husband, Mike, and my family have been very patient and supportive while I followed my dream. I enjoy family time on the soccer field, at the lake, at church, or just staying at home playing board games. I am a strong believer in God, family and faithful friendships.|
I grew up a tomboy so I was a late bloomer when it came to playing with dolls. So I always tell my friends that I am reliving my childhood through these babies. My sister introduced me to reborning in February of 2005. I was instantly hooked to the art. Though I had always been the “crafty” type, this was something that I found myself deeply rooted to. After being in the art for a couple of years, I began thinking of how fun it would be to sculpt some of these babies myself. In February 2009, when the reborning market slowed due to the economy, I decided this was my opportunity to learn to sculpt. I bought the “How To” DVD’s and supplies and couldn't wait to start. After my first sculpt, I couldn't wait to do more. I had found my passion.
I absolutely love sculpting babies. I am continuously trying to improve and achieve that realistic expression, or pose. It is hard to explain the self-fulfillment and pride I feel when I see a piece of clay become such a sweet little baby, knowing that I sculpted it myself. Newborns grow and change so quickly, we find ourselves missing those precious little expressions and adorable features. Those expressions and sweet little features are what I want to capture and share in each and every one of my sculpts. Real babies are a magnet, attracting people to them with their beauty and innocence. That is my goal with sculpting, to draw attention to the art of sculpting and reborning. I want to appeal to every doll collector out there, in hopes that they would be proud to own a sculpt by me.
