Some one suggested to me that I should do an Alice in Wonderland (which everyone who reads this blog knows I LOVE) and so I happily obliged! Here she is! She's 19" tall x 4 1/2" wide x 3" deep.
Her legs are jointed, and posable. Her right arm is made from a vintage skeleton key. Her left arm is made from a small glass vile that has a slip of paper in it that says Drink Me, a metal found object and a blue teacup I made from apoxy. The base of her hat is a vintage watch piece, a silver colored faux watch face, along with the vintage parts on the hat, a tiny key on the back, and a lock. Her chest has a vintage pocket watch piece that says AWW.CO in beautiful script. You can still see the tiny rubies. I added a small gold rabbit (what would Alice be without her rabbit?) and there is a tiny monocle over his eye! Her right eye is an enameled Victorian looking vintage watch face. Her clothes are hand stitched and not removable. I hand painted (her corset is also painted on) her in layers and sealed her with a matte finish. Her red lips and the red heart are not as bright red as they appear in the photos.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!! I'm off to play in more clay...xoxo
I'm like most artists, I've been creating something for as long as I can remember. I have explored many types of media and love experimenting with new things. Mixed media seems to be where my heart belongs. I can combine my love of painting, sculpting, adding found object all into one. The Steampunk Soul series evolved after I took a job with a corporation--the Soul Sucker. I hope you enjoy my artwork! xo Michele
