Had the urge to create some art dolls made form scrap metals. I usually like to use materials that have their own original colors, because I'm not big on adding color. Maybe if I were a painter, but I currently have no desire to add paint.
Simon's arms are created from wire as well as the designs on the midsection.
It's been a little while since my last post, but I have been busy in the studio. Lucy came together this past weekend. I hand wove the base a few yrs. back and the torso/head were nesting on top of another body for a while. Well, they collided last weekend and became Lucy. Most things that are not permanently attached sitting around in my studio are fair game for other uses.
Well I finished my class with Michael Demeng and it was fun. I became entranced with his use of the eyes in his work and thought I would give it a try. I used 2-D eyes instead of paper images. It gives the piece a more dramatic look.
