Artist Matt Moore recently spent a residency at Summit on Powder Mountain in Eden, Utah where he created these lovely mandalas from gathering objects from his surroundings. The resulting natural sculptures are breathtaking. See more below:
Otachi puppet is go! Started the mockup of the head today. This is the first draft, the final will probably be made in thin upholstery foam (??? I gotta shop around, I dunno)…this is just so I can get the patterns to exactly how I want em. Her jaws bit lopsided right now eheehh…
And she’s not gonna be just an arm puppet, I’m gonna make her whole figure so she’ll be like a marionette!
so tomorrow i’m officially starting my adventures in making an articulated Otachi puppet. (pacific rim nerdface, oops) gonna make some mock-up patterns and figure out how the geometry’s gonna work. It’s gonna be pretty big and complicated, so i’m super excited for the challenge. ovo
good thing I’ve been both sewing and sculpting on and off for…a while, otherwise this new venture might end up being a disaster.
I’ll try to post wip pics if I find them worth it??
