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.
