Assemblage Art

For the record, DaVinci and Picasso, I don’t claim to be.
Rough around the edges creations
Is all that you will see
Yet it is one of my favorite vocations

FrankenFaerie

 FrankenFaerie – Faerie assembled from a basic art model. The main body is from the bendable wood figurine to study form, proportion, and style. Hands and feet were removed from a Barbie with a dremel. Wings were created using matches to make the shape and covered in ClingWrap, painted blue. The skirt is made of layered cupcake papers. Hair is silver, bendable solder; painted with Copper Spray Paint.

Horse Au Natural

 Horse Au Natural – The horse was my first piece, compiled using all pieces found outside in nature. The mane and tail are formed of pine needles. The head was compiled using a broken egg shell, down feathers from a nest (abandoned), and pieces of pine cones & acorns. Body is a pine cone. Legs are simple twigs. All held together with either basic jewelry wire or hot glue.

Mothers Peacock

 Mother’s Peacock – This peacock was built for Mother’s Day (Yes, a homemade gift always works). The main body was created using shapeable mesh wire. Eyes were simple knuts from Home Depot, attached with hot glue. The tail was created using basic string netting thrown on top of a spare branch found outside. The legs were made of twigs while the third extremity is actually a form of support and balance. That is a pencil, covered in a lost shoe lace. All attached to a simple cardboard box for the base.
