Just finished sculpting this out of terra cotta clay. She is probably about 3 ft. tall. I will probably paint her off white and then add maybe an antiquing glaze. I have a wooden wagon that I put flowers in during the summer and she will probably stand by that. I'll post another picture of her after I get everything set up.
I hung this iron headboard from a beam in my studio. It's hung from pipe that I covered with velvet. I didn't like seeing the chain so I put small scraps of fabric in the chain and tied some along the bottom. The fabric is all silk velvet that I have dyed. I'll probably be hanging some more things as time goes on.
I made this drape from several drop cloths. It is also hung from the pipe that is attached to a beam. I tied it back using different strips of silk velvet and added rhinestone jewelry and a vintage flower.
I'm back to my first love, sculpting! I've been wanting to do this sculpture for a long time and decided I needed to get it done. I'm not getting any younger. Imagine that! I've worked really hard on this and used almost 75 lbs. of clay in it. It's about 24" tall, but will shrink some when it is fired. I have a little more smoothing and clean up to do on it and then it will have to dry for several weeks before firing.
I started taking an online class from Mary Ann Moss. If you have a chance to take one of her classes, don't miss it! This my first book that I made in her Full Tilt Boogie class. It's made from a vintage photo album from the 1800's. I'm hooked! It was so much fun.
The weekend of June 3 found me in Dallas taking the last Gilded Life workshop to be offered at the completely renovated church there. What fun we had!! We spent Friday in Canton at the flea market. It was so hot!!! I want to go again maybe in October when it is cooler. Saturday, Lesa Dailey taught a class that was fantastic and Sunday, Shea taught a class that I was unable to attend. Her classes are always wonderful. They hope to have classes when they are settled in California. If you get a chance to go, they are well worth the price.
