Tired of answering the, “Why don't you have a boyfriend?" question, one single woman has created her own imaginary partners - out of clay. Artist Mary Stephenson has created seven clay partners in her London-based studio, where she also stages elaborate date scenes with them. For Mary, it all started at a wedding in 2015, when a guest told her that her past three years of being single had been, ‘a waste.’ Amazingly, Mary’s clay boyfriends only take one day to create and they all have different facial features, hairstyles and skin tones but the 27-year-old insists that the boyfriends don’t have names or personalities to make them more redundant from the scene.
