Joshua Burkhardt began sculpting with polymer clay at age 9. He became an entrepreneur at the age of 10, an instructor at age 11 and an author at age 12.
He has been commissioned to do many original sculptures such as dogs, birds, opossums, flamingos, Indians, iguanas, lion fish and more. His best selling sculpture is still the simplistic Nativity scene with Mary, Joseph and shepherd kneeling at the side of Baby Jesus.
