I'm so excited to finally share with you.....now that all the Christmas gifts have been delivered.
These are my latest works of art.
I call this form of art "Intuitive Sculpting"
I totally rely on my intuition....
I have no pre-conceived notion of the final piece....
which adds to the therapeutic intuitive part of the sculpting.
This first picture is the first sculpture I created.
I was sobbing while I was dressing her.
I used several hankies that my Dad mailed to my Mom while he was posted overseas during the war. Mom collected teddy bears as well and I knew that this was one art project that would honour my late Mom.
I started with a chosen rock from the forest....built an armiture, used cotton t-shirts and a product called Powertex to create a form, after which I "dressed" her with her outfit.
This sculpture I named "Paulie" after my Mom whose name was Pauline.
This next one is called "Feeding the Birds" as seen in Trafalgar Square in England (which I have visited)
She's made using a gray coloured Powertex.
I moved next into creating 3 foot sculptures. The size allowed me to become even more creative while dressing her.
and then there's "Elizabeth"
with a couple of close-ups showing her detail....
she's made with cotton placemats and lots of cotton doilies.
So that's what I've been busy creating while mending a broken foot.
I will be making more of these you can bet and hope to sell them in a local art gallery.
If you want to order a custom made sculpture please email me....I'd feel most
honoured to create a personalized sculpture just for you or a loved one.
