Pumpkin Head Lady

Check out the Halloween Queen's Castle Bootique on April lst for new artwork by some awesome Halloween artists.  I will feature my Pumpkin Head Lady.  She is sculpted from paper clay and stands on a base sculpted from paper clay and apoxie clay.  This piece is 11" tall and sits on a base with a diameter of 4.5".  She is One of  Kind never to be created again....I promise...because I cannot stand to create the same thing all over again.  If I do it will definitely have a new twist.
This was a fun piece and I really enjoyed creating the base.

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.
