Becky Carving Horse

Jane Knows How to Ride

Turning the Tables Finished

September 24, 2011

Becky put the finishing touches on Turning the Tables the past week–in time for Jane to have a photo of the piece for a grant application in Arizona. Now I think I need to learn a bit more weaving techniques as I love working with wire and pairing it with other materials. The “nest” on the end of the cat’s tail, for example. The cat’s tail is actually the neck of a violin without any pegs. It made a deligntful place for our bemused bird to place her nest.  I also found out how hard it is to form a perfectly smooth oval-egg shape from modeling compound! I guess my art education is INCOMPLETE!
