"Houses of Clay"... is for sale in the Virtual Exhibition Nov. 18-Dec. 16, 2022

I'm excited to be able to offer this art doll as part of the 
Elemental Spirit Dolls: Healing the Planet Show
which benefits Friends of the Earth Climate Change Team

Designed to hang  on a wall, this mixed-media doll
is approximately 12" tall and 10" wide.

The head is paper clay, from a press mold that I cast; 
using a vintage baby-doll. Wood chair caning pegs,
 wood beads, bone beads, annealed wire, fabric, 
nails, gold-leafing, cardboard and acrylic paints 
were used for the halo, the wings and the body.
Signed & Dated

Thank You... for stopping by!

"Little Ones"... Loving the Process!

These guys makes me smile...

They are in the Artful Giving Show
which opened yesterday at the RRCA
in Millville, New Jersey. 

They started out with some annealed wire, 
newspaper and masking tape... lots of tape!

A little paper clay... more masking tape!

Watercolor paper and layers of hand towels... 

Did I say? 
They make me smile...

I'm pleased with his wings...

His personality continues to emerge...

"Dreams"... A Barn Owl!

Skin and Bones... it's a beginning!
A little "fattening up"... for the holidays!
Some Paper Clay... applied!
He's still a work-in-progess... 
but his personality is beginning to emerge!
