Santa Claus for 2012

Santa Claus is a 12" figure with a soft body and sculpted head, hands and boots over a wire armature. He stands with the brass rod and tube method and can be removed from his stand for shipping. I dressed him in handmade wool with a real mink collar. He has beautiful blue glass eyes and lamb's wool for his beard. The trim on his coat and cap is some antique trim I have been hoarding waiting for just the figure to put it on. He carries a few toys in his back pack and there are a few on his base... OOAK, never to be created again. He is not a toy, but a collectible to be treasured for years to come. This Santa has already been sold.

Alice in Wonderland

One of my favorite books is "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" illustrated by Anne Bachelier.
Her art work inspires me and so I decided to do Alice with the colors she used in her illustrations.
There is a wonderful lady from Melbourne who hand dyes beautiful fabrics, ribbons and lace and
has a shop Raes Rags on Etsy.  I had her dye some mommie pure silk for my Alice.  These are the
colors that Anne Bashelier loves to use in her illustrations.
Picture of the front of the book along with fabric samples
Picture I am looking at for my new piece.
Her fancy shoes.. The base is made of pieces of wood from a puzzle.

The mushrooms are drying. I sculpted them from paper clay and have to paint them and
of course add that wonderful caterpillar

Southern Belle Fairy

I live in Natchez, Ms and during the Spring we have a Spring Pilgrimage featuring the Antebellum homes with the hostess ladies all dressed in antebellum dresses and the visiting gentlemen drinking Mint Juleps while their wives tour the homes.
When I finished this fairy, my husband walked by and looked at her and said,"Is that your Southern Belle Fairy?" So, that is how she came by her name. She is a 9" figure sculpted from puppen fimo with arms and legs that can be posed. I dressed her in a beautiful hand dyed gauze and antique lace with antique miniature flowers and iridescent beading around her pantaloons and wrists. Her wings are mixed media.

She sits on her own chair that has been made from a paper mache box and apoxie clay; painted and crackled for an antique look. This is a One of a Kind piece never to be created again. She is now in an Art Gallery and is no longer for sale over the internet.

Holiday March completed

"Holiday March" is finally completed and consists of three figures marching with their musical instruments. The leader is a 7" Elf followed by a 6" Pumpkin Head and a 5" Snowman. They are all sculpted out of Creative paper clay, an air dry clay. Using a technique taught by Jean Bernard, I covered them with kleenex that had been colored with acrylic paint and sealed them with 3 coats of matte varnish. They march on a base that has been covered with antique sheet music and crackled for that warm patina. All figures can be removed for shipping. This is a OOAK piece never to be created again.  This bunch  left me and moved to their new home.
