Butterfly Gardening I---now showing at the South Jordan Library

I made this piece for an earth friendly recycling contest. The finished piece is roughly 12" x 15 1/2 ". The butterfly was created from pressed flowers which are glued to a pane of glass with another pane on top. At the top of the piece is a rusted rake head which goes down behind the glass panes and becomes the butterfly's body. Two strings of barbed wire run along the sides of the butterfly which tie the piece together. Shards from a broken clay pot have been glued to the frame in mosaic fashion. You can now see Butterfly Gardening I at Whitmore Library (downstairs) through the end of February. It will then go to South Jordan Library - Mar - Apr,  Tyler Library - May - June,  and Bingham Creek Library - Jul - Aug 2010.

Needle Felted Art Piece at the Zoo

I entered the Utah's Hogle Zoo Art Contest and my piece was selected to be in the show. I didn't win a prize but it was fun to go see it hanging in the gallery along with the over 100 other beautiful pieces. It will be on display until March 14th. It is constructed from needle felted wool and is hung from part of a fallen tree limb.

The stand is made from  a bun foot, which is a rounded wood piece I found at Lowe's. I drilled holes in it and glued spools on the top. It holds ten pincushions.

Here are the most recent 20 of the 902 pincushions I needle felted from wool roving. They are sculpted with a special barbed needle from ...
