Welcome to May!
(I nearly don't dare saying it, but..) La Pachamama is almost finished. It's been such a mammoth task that at times it felt never ending, even though I knew I was on schedule.
The cape is finished and just awaits the whispering pots, for which I'm currently designing the leather hanging straps.
A whispering pygmy pot (just 3cm high)
As you can see, it's filled the room I'm temporarily working in whilst my studios are built.
As for her head, I want to adjust a bit of her under mane, which will be visible due to the tilted display angle proposed by the gallery. And her nose is still an undecided factor. Not sure if I want her to have one or not.
But the ice tusks work well for me.
So really, just a few minor tweaks to go.
The show opens on the 6th May at Visual Carlow, Ireland, and continues til the 31st August 2014.
