Paper clay busts, including mixed media

Cirque, Hedda and Ronald 2016

When I start a paper clay bust, I let the process move organically.  My only intention before I started these 3 was “eccentric”.  They all have pine cone caps as head dresses and now I’m addicted to pine cone caps.  Seriously addicted.  They are textural, quirky, organic and whimsical.

These 3 happened at the same time.  I shifted back and forth between them as they were drying and taking form.  I love their eccentricities, out there in the open for all to see.

A friend gave me a mink remnant that she found in a bag of goodies and I immediately thought of a socialite from the 1950’s.   I have a book of photographs entitled “Reflections of a Man, The Photographs of Stanley Marcus” (of Neiman Marcus fame).  I have a life long fascination with fashion and a darling friend gave me this book as inspiration and eye candy.  Ms. Bitsy would fit directly into the pages of the book.
