Hip, hip, hooray! I have successfully completed the 1st week of my 4 week Craft-a-thon!
In order to post todays project by midnight, I had to kind of cheat. Although the art work is “technically” complete, I have not attached all the pieces yet. So the look of it will change ever so slightly after putting it all together. I will post another photo once I have completed this mission.
This wonderful creation started when I was cleaning my garage and stumbled across 3 figures I had made in a ceramics class I took a while ago. At the time I was not happy with the way they had turned out, but I held onto them because I like to recycle everything, including “art gone bad.”
I love this piece because of its many layers, both physical and meaningful. You would never guess that even the wooden shapes I chose to put on the chest of each figuring is symbolic of the word I glued onto them.
Well, I could go on and on about this piece but will just let you experience it for yourself instead. It is titled “Live, Love Laugh.” Enjoy.
