For some reason I thought it was spelled “anomale”. This piece is the first tiny step in a new direction for me. It is the first, practice version of a piece I have designed to be much more grandiose, but don’t have the time to finish right now. Imagine elaborate beadwork. The rear view. I … More The Anomaly
Here’s a piece I did for the Department Show. Back to work! (I have so much more to sew – and the clock is ticking!) A bit romantic, isn’t it? A Cherubic Haiku: If you stand too close I’ll pierce you through the heart with Arrows of desire.
Well, the St. Louis Crammed Organisms trip was a real eye-opener. The caliber of work they had on display was impressive, to say the least. Some of the pieces I saw were so innovative, creative, and different, it made me reconsider my entire plush philosophy. Here’s the bottom line: I am proud of what I’ve … More Cabbages and Kings
A collaborative plush experience. I am now a member! How exciting! Also, heading to St. Louis tomorrow for the Crammed Organisms Book Release! Yes! I’ll take lots of pictures. Check back Sunday!
Better known to you as the Clover Mite. Those tiny little red bugs you see everywhere come spring time. Rodamaur means “red ant” in Icelandic, apparently. I like it. This little critter has seen better days, however. He can not, in fact, see anything at all! The Gaping Maw: Some fresh air: A Predatorial Haiku: … More The Rodamaur (aka Bryobia Praetosa)
Soo….when you make a maggot that is big and round in the middle, and little on the ends, you run into one main problem: Its legs don’t touch the ground! I guess we can overlook that one impracticality, when you consider that real maggots don’t have legs at all. But what a looker, eh? Taha … More Cackalack-y
The Quadrille! (Because square dancing was the best day in middle school PE) I believe precious is the word most befitting this piece. And unfortunately, as much as I struggled, the pictures do not do it justice. It’s adorable! (And available for purchase in my Etsy Shop) Part 2 of the grand wattle experiment! The … More Do-Se-Do!
Look, people! This is what the opening weekend of the Crammed Organisms show looks like! And if you look towards the back of the room, suspended from the ceiling is… this guy! It’s kind of like Where’s Waldo! How exciting for me!
Well, okay. It’s not a rhomboid. But it’s pretty geometrical, and, well, another fortuitous mistake. And, you know, whenever I hear the word “rhomboid” I always think of square-dancing. Unusual? With White Wattle: A bit of a fatty from the side: A Geometric Haiku: “Don’t be so pointy,” It said as it rolled away. I … More The Rhomboid
That’s actually a word! A great one, at that. Behold, the slightly horrifying, wonderment-inducing beast of the ocean! The horror! The underbelly of the beast! Whatever you do, do not mention the likeness it bears to a chicken! It will crush you instantly with its Tarantula Fangs! A Nautiloid Haiku: Tiny green plankton Festooned between … More The Nautiloid
