Here Comes The Sun…and a Bird…and a Heart

The other day I took a break from making the bobble totems with bodies. I wanted to make something a bit smaller that was quicker to put together. I am planning to add the bobble totems to my line of work and having a range of price points is always a good thing. The “tiny totems” would fit that mindset.

This idea for tiny totems first popped up in my head while making my hearts last month. I wanted to find out how one of those hearts would look & function as a totem.

The heart looked pretty good. Of course, while this idea was ruminating in my head, I had to think about other sculptural items that might look cute as totems.

How about a tiny bird?

Of course, what bird doesn’t enjoy a bit of sun?

And here is the tiny totem trio:

The heart is 4.25″ tall. The bird is 3.75″ tall (to his beak). And the sun is 4.75″ tall to his longest sunbeam.

Have an excellent weekend everyone!

The Daily Head: 04/07/11

Today’s head is “Walking on Sunshine.”

This polymer clay sunshine head measures approximately 3″ from sunbeam to sunbeam and is made with cadmium yellow clay, and then sanded, washed with acrylic paint to bring out the texture, and lightly buffed.

“I’m walking on sunshine, oh, oh, and don’t it feel good?”
