Sculpture Made a Captain Ahab Figurine Out of Polymer Clay

Talented crafter, Ryan Friant, finds inspiration in mythology, fantasy art, and fairytales. He’s the creator behind this amazing polymer clay figurine of Captain Ahab, the main protagonist from Moby Dick.

“When I started hand-making polymer clay art dolls and pulling in all of these early influences that have stuck with me, I realized that I could make my sketches come to life, feel more like a complete reality than I ever could with two-dimensional art,” Friant says. “I’ve had numerous sketches similar to the image I created for my Captain Ahab piece, Ode to Obsession, for years. I’ve been intending to make a Captain Ahab portrait and actually read Herman Melville’s Moby Dick for years.”
