Figurative assemblages that include chair or railing spindles

Heart Centered, 2016

This started with a gift of an old croquette set.  The balls are ideal for heads, so I challenged myself to make a face and go from there.  I have been collecting acorn caps on my walk and one of them seemed perfectly suited for this sculpture.

The arms are fabric from an old pair of pjs, and I painted them to highlight their stripes in keeping with the “old croquette set” feel.
