Austin, Texas (PressExposure) May 16, 2015 -- Multi-medium visual artist, Tanya Davis specializes in figurines. Her body of work includes fully-sculpted polymer clay pieces and vinyl platform art toys. Since mid-April 2015, Davis has been working on learning how to create a mold to cast resin pieces based on a fully-sculpted piece. This is now culminating in the launch of her first series of casted resin figurines, which she has chosen to start out with the perennial favorite: steampunk devil ducks. Each cast duck is painted by hand and signed by the artist. The pieces are finished with a clear-coat that protects and enhances the figurine's detail. This will be a limited run.

In the popular fashion of many Kidrobot or Funkopop figurine series, Tanya Davis' resin devil duckies will be offered in blind boxes. This means that the buyer will not know which duck figurine they will get until they buy it and open the box. This lends an exciting element of surprise. In this particular series there are four colors: Blue, Plum, Topaz and Green. Additionally, one Black duck will be made for every eight made in the aforementioned colors. "Get your ducks in a row!"

Participation in the Art.Science.Gallery's Tesla Project show earned mention in an art review in the Austin Chronicle:
"Behold Tanya Davis' pair of Tesla-Punk Ducks, the cyborged waterfowl a slight tangent from her usual sculptures of clay and metal, the idea here being, the artist says, 'an electric duck powered wirelessly by Tesla's coil transformer.'" -- Wayne Alan Brenner, Arts Editor for The Austin Chronicle, July 2014.
"Tanya's figurines have a really excellent style, and are nicely executed. I love when industrial factors are added to otherwise natural things." - Sam Hotch, screen printer and artist, Philadelphia, Pa.
