A big thanks to Daryle Cook on the Cloth & Clay site for the inspiration to get back to work on the ART DOLL QUARTERLY bottle doll challenge! I've really been enjoying my freedom this summer but I'm happy to be working again on this piece. This is where I'm at now. -Lori
Blossom, Paper Mache Artisans Team Web Show Challenge
April Showers Bring May Flowers was the theme for our Feb. 13th PMA challenge. Blossom our antiqued paper mache duck sets her umbrella down now that the April showers are over and her umbrella is full of May flowers. Blossom stands on a vintage kitchen strainer. Her umbrella is full of vintage millinery flowers. Check out our etsy shop for more details www.careysquirks.etsy.com
The Boogey Man
The Boogey Man dances upon vintage organ keys as he celebrates his escape from the Autumn Harvest! He is constructed from paper mache on a wire armature. He wears vintage crepe pants and a hat decorated with vintage ribbon and tinsel. He was created for the Paper Mache Artisans' Webshow and may be purchased at
We have been working on a variety of "putz" like houses for a custom order on etsy. We really enjoyed the process. Houses appeared everywhere in the studio!
