Decorated toy Okpaki

15cm x 13cm x 11cm

The Joy of Not Conforming Part of the Army of Joys Collection

Congo sometimes didn't know what she was. She loved her zebra pants but was no zebra. Her short neck meant the giraffes just looked down on her despite their family ties. Her flame haired companion soothed her, encouraging her to embrace her oddities. She enhanced her stripes with forest jewels and stuck her tongue out at uniformity.

The okapi is a discarded toy, embellished with collected textiles, jewellery, dried flower components and beads and a milkmaid. She has also been dressed with decoupage, paint and gold leaf. She has a jewelled collar and an Indian headdress and painted nails.

All my pieces are individual and one-off - as I only work with recycled and reclaimed objects I never know what I am going to find. If you are looking for something particular, please ask - and I'll start looking!
