figures

for the last few years i’ve been experimenting with paper mache, and paper in general, especially antique papers… and wire, and really old fabric, and things from my garden, like moss and wee flowers and twigs and roots… ok. i’m obsessed. here are a small sampling of what i’ve been making. the question is… should i open up a shop and sell? just keep making them for myself? will i run out of room?IMG_7995.jpgIMG_7999.jpgIMG_7997.jpgIMG_8037.jpgIMG_8041.jpgIMG_8044.jpgIMG_8049.jpgIMG_8051.jpgIMG_8054.jpgIMG_8055.jpg

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

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

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.
