gets me thinking about our local farms and the awesome families, taking on such an epic task. I’m lucky to live where i do- an abundance of small farms, who offer their tasty stuff at our local farm markets. Thinking about them inspired these. Well, that, and dreaming of yummy tomatoes.csa2csa1

A question I ask continually as I work on the final stages of sculpting my paper mache figures. I still don’t know who she is. I just know she has a lovely soul.18198235_10203321631598411_6035456721409656824_n

paper making

… is so much fun. i pulled a bunch of stuff out of the recycling bin, and picked some things from my yard- blossoms and leaves, and made a batch of handmade paper this weekend.

 

here it is drying on my studio door! varying degrees of success and thickness, but this is so fun.

she’s endlessly walking through the forest (except when she’s sitting in my hand.) she’s also very golden. her hair is made from some old rope that i found, and her clothes are from handmedowns. all very soft. also, she has pantaloons. i love pantaloons. i need to make more dolls with pantaloons. forest lady IMG_5836 IMG_5863

paper mache art

I’ve started making big and little friends to share my studio space with me.  I absolutely love bending wire and adding layers on and on. My first pieces were big… bigger is definitely easier, and a good way to get the feel for it.

(a big cat lady astronomer and a big lady pig head.)

I also love adding fabric, and letting the newsprint show through. Luckily, I have a stash of vintage fabrics, buttons, magazines and papers to use. Here’s Girl Bear.
