Me and the hubby were off to a married couples retreat this past weekend and I had packed a bag of art stuff to work on during the weekend for whenever we had downtime and came to find out that we had zero downtime! It was a fabulous weekend reconnecting, but no art was created then. The piece pictured above was put together on the drive up to the retreat and was hand sewn on the way home from the retreat.

I put this together this morning! The lower half looks like a broom my grandmother use to make, but this one was made in China. I Found it at a second hand store. I made the box sitting on top of it and it's been hanging around the studio for a while. The arms are being borrowed from another doll just for this picture. The other doll is curing, so the arms were availble temporarily. The green bottle inside the box has a bunch of metal springs in it. The head is of clay which is taped to a wooden block.

Fruits of my labor for the week. A bit preoccupied with family issues, so not much time was spent creating. Hopefull next week will be back to a normal routine.
I will be preparing for an art show on Mothers Day, so new stuff to come!! Provided that everyone in the family stays healthy!!

I came across two of these wooden contraptions and immediately purchased them because they are pretty cool looking. As far as I could figure, they seem to be used for winding up thread. They came with the thread already on them and I like the look, so the thread will stay put. The hat is a metal funnel and the head is porcelain. The wooden stand are legs that I had cut and shaped a couple years back. As with all my Spare Parts Monday photos, all items are not attached or adhered in any way to one another. However, there is always some potential for a permanent union!
