Our “Good Morning America” anchors have never looked so statuesque.

Artist Taylor Zitman has been making incredible clay sculptures since she was just 8-years-old, but this morning on “GMA LIVE!,” she presented Josh Elliot, Lara Spencer and Sam Champion with one-of-kind clay version of themselves.

“Ooooh! That’s awesome!” they shouted, totally surprised by their clay counterparts.

“I need to get the eyebrows waxed, but other than that, we’re good,” Elliot joked.

“The detail is unbelievable,” Spencer said.

Zitman started her own business selling her original work at age 15 and credits a college professor for getting her into  clay animation.

“I started sculpting when I was 8,” she said. “When I was in college, a professor saw my work and said ‘Hey, have you ever tried animating your figures?’ He showed me ‘Wallace and Gromit’ and some Tim Burton films and I gave it a try.”

The creation process takes anywhere from a month to a few months to complete, depending on the details of the characters and the complexity of the claymation.

“I love being creative and watching my work come to life,” Zitman said.
