Finals week is well underway, which would explain why my attempts at outfit posts have been thwarted.
Anywhooo, here's a lil' sumfin sumfin that I've been working on for my 3D class.
It seriously took me over 6 hours. I blame all of the miniatures!
The project is based on the works by American assemblage sculptor Joseph Cornell.
I chose the rather strange and morbid theme of Spontaneous Human Combustion.
Materials were sourced from all of my favorite thrift haunts as well as my junky craft stash.
I admit the chair looks a little wonky, but I was getting really tired and apathetic.
I made the vase from a plastic cap I stole from one of my little sister's bottles of body mist.
Wrapped in hemp and sitting atop a periwinkle button, its flowers are beads and feathers from my collection of crafting nonsense. I knew there was I reason why I hoard knickknacks.
Barbie's limbs were sliced off a la Dexter and charred over an open flame. Speaking of flames, I almost set my family's kitchen on fire creating my "charred remains." We won't discuss that I was standing right next to the sink.
(I was too captivated by the leaping flames, does this make me a pyro?!)
Though I chose this topic for it morbidity and potential for controversy, I began to relate to my charred specimen.
It has been a rough semester, both academically and personally.
However, I've done my best to maintain my positive outlook.
I hope my placing of her charred limbs reflect that.
The madness of this semester will officially be over tomorrow at noon!
Until next time, ♥.
