Alice and Wonderland Tools and Wearables
These sculptural tools and wearables were commissioned by Colleen Atwood to be used in the upcoming Alice and Wonderland sequel, Into the Looking Glass. The film is currently being filmed in London from July 2014 to November 2014. My aim was to create work with a circa 1875 aesthetic and a physical scale a third larger than the human body. The Hatter Clan, better known as The Little People, fell into an ant hill and were shrunk forever surrounded with objects the ants gathered inside the hole over time. These works will be worn and used in various scenes by the Hatter Clan family.
Additional photos and descriptions of other works being used in the movie can be see on my sculpture page.
Looking forward seeing the movie in the near future and having my sculpture being included in an amazing major movie film!
I'm very excited about the jewelry I've been creating using ordinary everyday objects. The common object becoming works of wearable art. The images shown here are my first prototypes that are allowing me to get feedback and refine my design ideas. I have been creating these bracelets for over 20 years for my own use but now I'm looking to create a wearable art business using my years of experience. I will be creating a web site for these so stay tuned for more on this new creative adventure.
I was very honored to be included in a current ceramic invitational curated by Elaine Olafson Henry at the Brinton Museum in Big Horn, Wyoming. The show runs from June 15-September 2, 2014. Two works were included, "Horse Brush Bouquet" and "Rabbit Brush Bouquet", both are shown in the photos below. The "Horse Brush Bouquet" has been purchased by Bunny Connell of Sheridan, WY. An exhibition catalogue was published in conjunction with this show.
Here are some photos of art works shown in a two person exhibit that opened July 11, 2014 at the Art Spirit Gallery in Coeur d' Allene, Idaho. A combination of works were presented resulting in a successful exhibition. It was wonderful to have family and friends attend the opening and share in the art experience. Many thanks to Steve for showing this work and working hard to install a beautiful presentation.
The June 21 & 22, 2014 brushmaking workshop in Lake Tahoe was very productive with an amazing number of raku fired ceramic and natural brushes created. The photos below are windows into what took place in this amazing environment! Looking forward to revisiting for a future workshop presentation.
