Chinese Landscape was created from an old frame, handmade paper, chopsticks,  Chinese coins, a Chinese newspaper, wallpaper and acrylic paint.
Guadalupe Pocket Icons.  I made a series of these little treasures, in different colors and shapes. They are created from paperclay forms I made of the Virgin of Guadalupe, wood forms, acrylic paint and nails. Although they are too large to fit in your pocket (and the nails would be a bit uncomfortable!), I wanted to indicate the small size -and the resulting small price. They are approximately 8-10 inches tall.
Guadalupe Icon 1 was created from bottlecaps, two milagros, two pieces of salvaged wood, a church form and paperclay.
Guadalupe Icon 2 was created from an old piece of wood, a salvaged picture frame, bottle caps, w ood form and paperclay.
Guadalupe Icon 3 was created from two salvaged frames and a clay Virgin of Guadalupe from Mexico.
Guadalupe Icon 4 was created from two pieces of wood, a salvaged frame, bottle caps, paperclay and a milagro.
Guadalupe Icon 5 was created from a Mexican clay Virgin of Guadalupe, two salvaged frames and acrylic paint.
Guadalupe Icon 6 was made from a wood frame, the lid to a box, two wood forms, bottle caps, and paperclay.
Guadalupe Icon 7 was fashioned from a salvaged frame, a wood box, a metal turtle that barely survived Katrina, bottle caps, a wood church form and paperclay.
Guadalupe Icon 8 was created from a salvaged frame, salvaged board, and four pieces of clay.
