Dream Weaver at HGA
Travel and other summer distractions have kept me away from the work table somewhat the past few months. That doesn’t mean that my studio has been completely fallow, just a bit more relaxed. The last piece I delivered to the Hillsborough Gallery of Arts is Woven Dreams.
This piece is a papier-mâché and paperclay sculpture. I began with the crescent moon which I sculpted over a corrugated cardboard under structure. The moon contains an internal sandbag to keep it tilted at just the right angle to accommodate the seated figure. The dream weaver herself is paperclay and papier-mâché over a wire armature. I created her unique skin tone with strips of torn tissue paper, and a tiny bit of silver paint. Her “other worldly” eyes are fashioned from iridescent beads. The entire sculpture was then sealed before the addition of her silver tinsel hair, wire and beaded weaving, and glittering tulle skirt.
I’ve also been busy finishing up sculpture commissioned as a present. I will share a few images of after she is delivered to her new home.
Back to the work table.
