Sculpting self-aggrandizement

I'm posting this here because, well, I like showing off. I've taken up sculpting for the past few months. Here's what I've done.
Funny story: I haven't sculpted since high school, and there I only ever sculpted a single thing: a mask that didn't work out, because I didn't know enough about casting to not screw it up.
Have you ever had one of those 'ah-ha' moments where you realize you have a skill that surprised you? I've never been a particularly good 2d artist: I can build something in 3d inside my head, but it gets warped in the translation to the flat plane. But working in clay makes sense to me. I'm not sure why it makes sense-- maybe some genetic memory of my Grandfather's lifetime as a carpenter-- but I haven't had this much of an connection to a medium since, well, a long damn time.
