Preparing for the Clover Markey @ the Armory

Last January I went to the 23 street Armory to check out this Clover Market I heard so much about . I thought " I'd like to do this show". And today, I am! Here are some of the pieces I have brought to the Armory.

Check out Clover Market's Facebook for dates and vendors!

It's been a while...

Business has been GREAT and I have had very little time to update my blog! Over the summer I did Clover market. Definitely check out their Facebook for locations and vendors.

Today I am off to set up Lydia's Guild but I thought I would take a moment to snap a few pictures of of the little guys going.

Miss Half & Half

This is " Miss Half & Half", named for the label on the old tobacco tin that makes it look like a banner a beauty contestant wears. Her legs are two recycled paintbrushes I painted then aged . Her neck is an old thread spool, cut in half and that crown she's wearing is a re-purposed toilet paper tube. I created her arms with clay and wire, and the little blue bird she's holding ,too. Now the head started as a paper mâché apple. I added some paper clay, old book pages, and tissue paper. She's a winner, alright, my little Miss Half & Half.

Catch of the Day

This polymer clay and wood piece is done! Finally ! Sometimes it takes a while for it to all come together. This head was made months ago, sat on my work table, then I added the pointy hat. Still, I could not find a body that looked right. When I pressed a broken watch face into a body and matched it up with the head, it all came together fast. She is holding a bucket of fish in one hand and 2 fish in the other. Look close at the base, there is another clock face on the bottom base. She is " The catch of the day".

Ideas come........and go. So jotting them down in a sketch book is important, FOR ME! I tend to get an idea for something and think " this is a great idea." Then later say " what was that great idea I had?"
I also like to look back in my book and see the original sketch after the piece is done. I get to see the changes that happen from 2D to the 3D finished piece.
