I love making funky things out of found objects and often find the coolest things to use in assemblage projects while I'm out walking. Despite giving myself permission to take the rest of the month of May off to recharge my creative batteries, I just couldn't stop myself from using these little resin faces and wings my neighbor gifted me and combining them with some found treasures!
I used driftwood found at Bodega Bay for the "legs" and a sprinkler knob with a painted metal washer and some fused glass "goobers" created in my glass studio. An old section from a vegetable steamer is the "skirt" and a marble is perfect for the crystal ball. Everything is attached with either a hook, screw or E600 glue (my absolute favorite!)
The two faces reflect the conscious Self who does the actual work while the subconscious Self aka "Muse" is the inspiration. We can get physically and mentally tired (like I was from the 3 back to back shows!) but when the Muse wants to come out and play, it's time to get back in the groove and start creating again.
Vacation time is over - looking forward to seeing what June brings my way.
