This lovely display was hidden in a corner window of a small shop in San Francisco. I can't even remember its name, but couldn't resist photographing it... I love the elegance of the Asian hand holding such a delicate natural treasure... Much like we as artists, hold precious creations to our hearts!
Four Lovely Women joined me on Tuesday to create 'Fairy Chatelaine's'! Little treasures were encased in clay, glittered, shaped and formed into enchanting charms any fairy would be proud to wear! The first one below, was created by one of the students for "a friend who just lost her Mother", filled with personal symbols and meaning... Truly Wonderful Day!!!
Ten Happy Students joined me last weekend for the 'Dia de Los Muertos Shadowbox' class at the CASTLE! What a wonderful day we had! Each student created their own version of a coffin reliquary using my hand-dyed velvets, dresden trim and other delightful wonders. Then they added a tiny skeleton inside, with accessories that tell its story - Delightful!
This class was so popular that I added a second date. If you have time, Come this Friday, October 30th, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. Friday's class is filling quickly so Call 501-204-9801 to reserve your spot!
