Autumn Harvest Witch Lantern

on October 7, 2013 - 4:33pm

Taking a break from posts about the happiest place on earth, today's focus is an Autumn Harvest Witch Lantern I just finished. 

I've had some lanterns kicking around the house for a while now. In fact, I've been slowly accumulating them for a couple of years with plans to create various sculptures and scenes that would go inside. 

Recently I finished a witch custom figure for a fellow haunter, and decided to present her inside a lantern (mainly to keep her safe during display because she's fairly fragile). I will post those pictures soon.

Once I sent that piece off to its new owner, I said to myself "Ok. You need to start your lantern series".

Here is the first creation of what I hope will be multiple lantern incarnations. 

She holds an LED candle in a glass candleholder nestled in her lap. 

It's a varied mixed media piece, ranging from clay and fabric to twigs and moss, standing 10 inches tall.

Luckily she's ready for the Bazaar of the Bizarre this Saturday, Oct 12th. I won't have time to complete another this fall, but perhaps over the winter I'll get started on a second lantern. 

Happy Halloweeining, folks! Hope you enjoy the set of pictures below.

And putting her inside a lantern makes for a wonderful presentation!
