Illuminated art

Bubs is away for the weekend and on a whim I pulled out some air dry clay and dusted off a homemade baby doll head mould I made many years ago, and I got to work.

I’ve been dreaming about making a lamp out of a sculptural art piece of my own making. Not a DIY, restoration project. This one will be a test of my own skills in making a unique piece from scratch. The first idea starts with a bunny. This first one is for my daughter, she has just discovered baby dolls  and is fascinated with anything with a face. Hopefully the resulting lamp doesn’t creep her out.

So, stage one is done, I just need to let it dry before I ‘refine’ the rough areas and sand it into shape, stage two will be making the final pieces to make the piece stand and surround the bulb.
