Chic Chic

The second in the series. She's my chic chick!

Designer chic

Chickens seem to be very popular, so I've had a bit of fun here with my series of chics. I've made a mold and they're cast in plaster, so moving into new realms for me. I've been able to find the feathers from my "collection" when I was involved in bridal wear, as well as scouring the fields of friends and neighbours who have exotic birds and regular farm chickens.

She has been sold

Up Up and away

Oh, how I'd love to be able to escape this way sometimes!!

Globe trotter

She's already checking out the travel guide for the next place to visit. A very kind lady I met at an exhibition months ago, mentioned that she had a couple of bags of pieces of fabric. A couple of weeks ago she dropped them off at the Gallery Contemporain, to which I belong, without even leaving a phone number for me to call and thank. This figure is resting on a piece. I've met so many very kind and thoughtful people over here. This figure is using a piece to lie on.   SOLD

Gardening in the wind

I've done some work with a plaster base and my gardener in the wind is one example. I think I managed to get the effect of the wind pretty well.

Reading on the beach

What a treat!!


eco taxi

What could be more ecological than getting to work on this form of transport!!   This delightful couple have been sold.

The constant gardener 2

I have made this constant gardener relaxing, sitting on a wall and looking over her domaine, enjoying her gardening and all the work and effort she's put into it over the time. She has three little birds hiding in her hair and a frog cheekily checking out the scenery.


Constant gardener 2

Here is the detailed version of my second in the series of the constant gardener. She has 3 little birds hiding in her hair and a frog very cheekily checking out the scenery from the brim.

The constant gardener

My constant gardener is 127cm tall, mixed media and I just love her. Her hair springs forth from the centre of her hat and she has all sorts of interesting birds and even a cat in the garden on her hat. A source of constant observation and discovery, just like my garden.  SOLD

Race against time!

So much to do, so little time!

Back view

Back view of my lady trying to keep up with today's fast pace!

Side view of extreme sports

I've finally posted a picture of the two ladies rock climbing, from a different angle so that the 3D effect is evident.

The big SPLASH

Watch out as she hits the water!!

Extreme sports

I've done something new here placing the sculptures in a frame so that they can be hung on a wall. The two ladies are exceptionally good rock climbers - note the pockets for the powder, the rope and they're both stretching to reach the fasteners lodged in the rock. Rather them than me, but they certainly are having fun. The frame is 53 X 53 cm

Farniente, which means doing absolutely nothing!

I envy her, with nothing to do! She is 35 X 19 cm, plaster covered with paper mache. The only colour being the beach chair supporting her back.

Margo multi tasking and coping well

Margo is knitting the finishing touches to the band of her skirt, frying an egg, taking care of her baby on her back and then the cat chose to sleep at her feet! The base is 9 X 5 cm and she is 14.5cm tall. Price upon request.

Notice the baby tied on her back and the cat under her feet!
