December 2010 show and tell

Sorry for the long gap between posts!  We hope that everybody who celebrates it had a wonderful holiday.

Let's see a work-in-progress from our December meeting.  Here is an original design by Peggy Smith.  He is Horus in his falcon persona as god of sky and protection.
His metal birdcage is covered with kimono silk and decorative fibers.

His head is sculpted, painted clay, and his feathers are ingeniously created of upholstery fringe.

The cage unlocks to reveal the reason for Horus' protective stance, a fabric-lined nest!
Peggy says Horus still needs some work, with maybe a little 'bling' added overall.  He looks great so far, and we look forward to seeing his final finished self!

Here's another doll that is almost, but not quite, finished...

A kitchen doll, complete with 'wooden' polymer clay spoon, but still missing her cookbook.
Made by Andrea Baughman from Julie McCullough's Secret Keeper pattern (and yes, she is shrunk to only 8 inches tall instead of 12!).  We'll just call her cookbook 'backordered' -- who hasn't had that problem with Christmas presents?
