These newest sculptures focus on travels through the underworld, as well as transformation. I have 2 sculptures that are Persephone, the Queen of the Underworld – as well as a delicate creature that has slithered along to encounter the river of Lethe, desperately looking for a way to let go of their humanity and move forward into the afterlife.
Expressing decay in doll form has been a recent interest through the use of burned plastics and exposed wire armature (the “skeleton” of dolls). These dolls are made from wire, rubber, plastics, cheesecloth, Puppen Fimo polymer clay, and plaster. Each piece is available through my etsy shop.
The obsession with creating decay in these creatures has led me on a new journey of getting involved with new technologies – the 3D pen. The pen extrudes a thread of ABS plastic so you can, literally, draw a sculpture. For anyone who has tried it, it has its challenges but I am really excited to share the creations I have made with this new technology (see photo below). They have been described as a witchy nervous system. I hope that you will enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed creating them!
