Come to ArtSpace Maynard’s Holiday Art & Craft Show This Weekend

This weekend I’m participating in ArtSpace Maynard’s 11th Annual Holiday Art & Craft Show. This my last holiday art & craft show for 2011.

I’ll have new Ornimals (Animal Sculpted Ornaments), Pyramid Fortune Vessels, Soulful Sprites and Heart in Hand Talisman. The Sprites & Talisman make great stocking stuffer gifts! I’ll also have a selection of wine bottle stoppers, perfume pens, and business card cases if you’re looking for a more traditional holiday gift. And if you’re looking for wall art, I’ll have a small selection of artwork from my Languedoc-Roussillon series.

Here are three new Ornimals that are coming with me:

Clown Fish Ornimal

"Gwynnie" Dachshund Ornimal

Great Horned Owl Ornimal

Hope to see you this weekend at ArtSpace!

Happy Holidays.

Piggy Ornament

Last year I made a few Santa and Snowman ornaments for the holiday shows. Those ornaments were made over used light bulbs. You can see them on my ArtFire studio page. The Santa ornament became a class I taught at Ink About It earlier this month.

This year I pulled out a box of glass ornaments that have been in my studio closet for…well, a long time it seems. This is a familiar routine because each year I pull them off the shelf, stare at them, tell myself that I either create something with them or donate them to Freecycle.

They usually go back on the shelf, you know, cause I really might make something with them.

And guess what? I DID IT!

Introducing Piggy O

Piggy O is made from custom colored polymer clay and sculpted over a flat glass ornament. She is hand sanded, buffed, and given a patina for an aged look.

And she even has a curly tail.

I’ve sketched out a few more ornament ideas, including a cat, of course. Now to get them made in time for my final holiday show at ArtSpace in Maynard (12/3, 12/4 and 12/5.)

(Inspiration for Piggy O comes from the wonderfully imaginative art of Doreen Kassel)
