Orang-utan, Tortoise, Panda, Flamingo and bluebird on wooden bridge plinth
20cm x 30cm x 6cm
An audience with the Queen of the Forest was always a well-attended occasion. She would listen to their stories, their worries and their gossip and make even the smallest creature feel treasured. Meanwhile one flamingo missed the gathering, padding around in the rushes enjoying some me time.
Joy of the Upside Down
Part of the Army of Joys Collection
The animals are all discarded toys, embellished with collected feathers, textiles, jewellery, dried flower components and beads. They have also been dressed with decoupage, paint and silver leaf. The base is wooden and has been covered with paper mâché and decoupage, sanded between each layer to create a smooth finish with depth of colour.
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!
