"i'll take a better picture later"
biggest lie in the history of biggest lies.
instead, i will make something new, and endeavour to photo-document it better instead.
when i was little(er) i used to have recurring dreams about flying.
so this is a morphing of a human and a bird.
it was made inititally from sculpey and then a mould was created using... silpression?
i will look that up.
and then the final piece was made with epoxy resin. which is presently painted white. with a little brass pin on the back. (almost)
jewellery and glass being friends:
slumped/fused glass 'beads' (i suppose) with strings and safety pins and brass jewellery pieces.
cut out with a little tiny saw blade by hand.
glass and brass by jess. ( :D )
continuation of previous concept.
dreams and nightmares. glass representing nightmares, inspired by the glass piece in previous post entitled: 'nightmare' by Ivan Mares
and the brass representing the dreams.
left brass: lady silhouette with three ears on one side. representing distorted senses in sleep. hearing things that do not exist/
right brass: little hand. pinching self to see if awake/asleep. thinking you can feel things in dreams / pinching self in dream
strings: web of dreams. things connecting. in sensicle and nonsensicle ways. disjointed sense of time and progression and location during dream.
mind and body disconnected in dream.
active thoughts, generally still body.
body left behind.
also. body on its own:
continuation of swanperson. in the dreams i never had wings as such. so swanbird is more symbolic while this is more accurate to the dream. i just had more impressive arms.
99c glass vessel preparin' for a sandblastin'. :|
peacock feathers on the back and art-nouveau-esque naked lady with over-pronounced slightly thorn-esque spine.
(and no arms)
