I know it's been a while since I've shared pictures of one of my girls/guys. So here is a commission that is going to her new home today! Ohhhh I don't want to let her go!! I ALWAYS do this... :)
Maybe that's why it's raining so heavily in Sydney today. Making it very hard to organize her photo shoot!
Rhiannon is created from found objects and a few treasures that Linda had given me to include. To give you a better idea of my process... these are the items Linda gave me....Rhiannon's head circlet was created from a bracelet that her brother brought for her in Asia. The gemstones around her hips and the jade flower at center are from that bracelet. The silver bracelet around her waist (the tiny joined flowers) was a gift from her parents when she was very young and Rhiannon's necklace was refashioned from one given to her by a Aunt. The silver bracelet on her lower hips was provided by Linda as well.
Everything else? Well I found all those treasures to compliment.
I hand dye and paint the textiles that I use to dress my sculptures and they are all from recycled clothing.
The hair? SECRET! But my process begins with a recycled building material.
The faces? Ceramic. I sculpt them by hand.

STOP PRESS....I have now found that Domayne (the home-ware store) sells glass domes with fit over my sculptures for $85. I had been asked about this. It's really not necessary for my sculptures but if you like the added protection/look of the dome, they are perfect.
