This critter has been hanging around the house for a while and I’ve finally gotten around to finishing.The google eyes are fun and will probably appear on the next few creations.
Recently I’ve got back into swapping after a break.I was asked to make a mermaid and enjoyed making this critter very much.She now lives with Tara in her curio cabinet.
A little critter for one of my pages
This is Kim’s new companion There is very much a tend to “put a bird” on just about any thing that is arty these days and I have no idea how this little one came to be in my stash.Safe to say it worked really well with this piece. One of the things I’ve always had in mind is creating small resting spaces for my critters,books and divas.To this end I’m really excited to be going to a workshop with Rick Araluce in October. His creations are just inspirational but I know i’m really rubbish at chippy work so I hope he’ll be patient !
Once in a while I’ll pull out an old piece of fabric from a worn out piece of clothing and create a new piece.
This doll is created from my favorite teaching shirt which eventually fell to pieces not long after we arrived in the US.On my desk yesterday I found a jar of gifted metal pieces and the spring nose was a starting.Somewhere in my mind is the suggestion that I make a 4 ft figure that I’ll be sharing in June and also the memory of visit Jan and Chris Hopkins Studios last week.May be this figure will be the start of that process.
