This piece was inspired by a section of ivy
that was cut from a tree used for firewood. After it had dried and the ivy
leaves were gone, it left a woody root system that came away clean from the
tree. I sanded and stained the piece, added a chair seat of grape vines and
embellished it with silk leaves and fabric wrapped wire.
Little Phart was created from my
I DREAM OF FLYING pattern, which was my first original design. He is 10"
tall, created from
doe suede fabric. He has inset acrylic eyes and hand painted features done with
colored pencils and sealed. Articulated fingers and sculpted toes. All cotton fabric for his tunic and
pants. Fancy fibers are sewn to the head for hair.
