The hat was a bad idea when sculpey wouldn’t cooperate, but I tried.
~THE EVOLUTION TABLE LAMP: a pandemic lamp of sorts mainly created from discarded leftover materials in my shop while honoring the stay at home order during covid-19. Repurposing empty spray cans and a discarded oil drum morphed into my vision, becoming the lamp body and shade. The copper patches symbolise all the bandages on a country under siege from a virus and a long history of racial inequality.
Heres a sculpture I made! I have a series of ethereal animal clay sculptures and this boi was my most recent creation.

At one point someone mentioned wanting red chickens, I wasn’t sure how they’d look with the comb being the same color, but I definitely don’t dislike the finished product.

finally finished my handmade birds nest! it has a wire frame with maple bark and cane seeds woven into it, i used a bit of embroidery thread to secure that to the frame, then added wild grasses, antelope horn milkweed seed fluff, shredded honeysuckle bark, feathers my chickens naturally molt, lichen, and moss. i used a sewing needle to carefully maneuver all the little pieces into one another, using spider silk in-between the various layers to stick them all together
this was a very experimental piece for me, i learned a lot and i must give credit where credit is due to my deep jealousy of hummingbirds’ divine little nests. if not for my sinful heart being moved to covet my tiniest of neighbor’s homes, i would not have discovered that humans can also make comfy things out of cobwebs and lichen, even if we’re too embarrassingly large to fit inside of them.
This nest is quite larger than a hummingbird’s would be and still I do not fit! *sigh* alas, it is not a bed for me but a little garden. The lichen and bits of moss are still alive, the whole thing can be happily doused in water (gently) to keep their thirst quenched as needed
The 1st from July.
A bit of a dull beginning.
