In progress. . . the story of my daily creative world. : )
I'd be the very first to say I usually have far too many things under construction at any one time. I will, on any given day, have 10-20 pieces in some stage of completion or design. I'll usually. . . well, sometimes. . . prioritize custom pieces but, after that, what I work on on any given day is really just what I feel like working on.
This is not always the best course of action, admittedly. There are days where my actual "work space" is down to about 6 inches square and I am surrounded by pleading eyes and waiting limbs and moss-less houses and half sculpted creatures!
I'm really trying to be a bit more con top of that and I think showing some of my in-progress work each week will help me push things thru instead of setting them aside for long periods while I get blissfully lost in the newest projects and never-ending inspirations!
So. . . some new things on the work table this week! Just wanted to share these as they are in progress and I'll update them when they are all complete. . .
|Fairy Belles - These are the new iteration of something I tried two years ago but never really liked the results. |
They actually have a jingly little bell in the hollowed bottom of the figurine that can be rung to summon fairy magic!
|Two figurines in process. I've decided to focus on a feature story for my Bewildering Pine World that includes creatures known as Hobs ( like the little fella on the left) and Grimalkins ( the familiars of Hobs, as seen on the right)|
The Hob above (no name as of yet) will have a very dapper Victorian waist coat and tie and likely a bowler hat that he will be doffing! The Grimalkin (also as of yet unnamed) will look like the larger, completed one in the next image.
|Grimalkin is an old English archaic word for a cat! I love the Pewter finish and the claws that will match the eye color.|
|This is how I make the Fairy things on Stars! This one will become "Theia Straedoor's Tart Cart" on a Star with |
mossy roof, stairs and fences, cooling table for the special, tiny Joonberry Tarts and the usual trees and landscaping!
A mythic Kitsune, 9-Tailed Foxgoyle!
|Her name is Okudara and I think she's quite the creature!|
So that's what's cooking here! Hope you are making magic today in your world too!
