Halloween in a Jar

on July 19, 2012 - 3:00am

 

I've tossed this idea around for a long time, and finally sat down to put it together. I think it's pretty cute.

I wanted to put together very simple sculpture displays in jars. I've started with a group of ghosts (below) and a family of owls in a nest (left). 

I like the idea of having Halloween sitting on a shelf like a preserve, just as you would with peaches or other summer fruits that remind you of warmer days during the winter. 

I'm going to make a pumpkin one as well, and bring all three to my next convention to see how people respond to them. Perhaps I'll make an entire series for the fall if folks respond well. We'll see. 

What do you think?

 

Whoooooo's Getting Ready for Christmas?

The newest addition to the Christmas ornament projects include these Owl Wreaths.

Using the tiny Christmas tree doesn't help give you a sense of size. They are approximately 10cms high.

Being an owl lover, I think they are ridiculously cute. I'm hoping they will appeal to a wide variety of people.

If you're in Toronto, and hope to get your hands on these, I have two shows coming up. First I'll be at Girlesque at Mitzi's Sister, 1554 Queen West at 9:30 (I'll be one of the people NOT wearing tassells or boas) tomorrow night (Nov 24, 2009).

And for those of you who may prefer a slightly more traditional craft event, I'll be part of Craftzilla on Saturday, December 5, 2009. It runs from 1:00pm - 6:00pm at Kathedral 651 Queen Street West.

At the moment, these are my only shows. Don't miss your chance to get a Peek-a-boo plant for the one you love!
