So I have some exciting stuff happening after the 19th, which I will tell more about when it happens, but this and next week I have submissions due, so I am offline alot. This week my sculpture unit is due so I am currently working on projects so that I can spend the last few days of this week getting my presentation done.
My current project is to take something, dismantle it and then make something else with it, I have had a thing about jars and vessels and containers for a long time, and I decided to use a shirt, Its reusing something.. I like to minimise waste, so instead of this being thrown in the rubbish I have made these from it… There are 2 more to come and then it needs to be installed upon a wall… Which will give it alot more substance and meaning than just the jugs, jars, teapots and other items I am making the shirt into.
This one is made to be a pitcher/water jug of some sort.. the top is part of the collar from the shirt.. the main piece (smocked and striped) is one of the sleeves from the shirt in its entirity
This one is based on a ostritch bottle which I saw online, though this ones more detailed and has a lid and everything.. its a teapot imho.. I may have to tie it down before it flies away 😛
While this MAY look like a baseball bat of some sort.. or one of those foam bats children sometimes use to wack each other, its ment to be a wine bottle as I have mentioned when the actual sculpture is done it will be more in context. 🙂
And some fun stuff, I have been making more jar worlds and krakens and working on doll clothes for my warlock doll which needs some cloth armor and robed pieces, the actual designing of the clothes is alot more time consuming than I realised, I suppose doing it all trial and error makes it longer, its quite fun though, to have the idea, try various ideas and then make it 😀
This is a doll blanket I made a while ago for a doll I made for my niece, it was a nice blanket but it was simply lacking something.. so I crocheted some edging from my set of 18 golden hands books which had alot of variations of this..
And I have more krakens sitting around.. This little guy however is off to England in a few weeks as a belated bday gift
Other than that, I am enjoying the fact that the weather though raining still is warming up greatly!
Till next time lovelies!
