The greatest creations are those that as you create them, you get lost in your thoughts, by the time you're tired of thinking you're holding in your hands, something from deep within...

Welcome inside my head, my heart...

Sphinx :)

Yes! I have finished my Sphinx. :D








This is the third class in the gourd series with Marilyn Radzat being held at Thatcreativeplace.com. This is a BIG gourd. A much bigger scale than I'm used to, no wonder it took so much longer to finish!











She opens and is trinket box, inside is mosaic glass & a velvet pillow.


I'll admit, i have a crush on the little inchworm handles ;)

Thanks so much for coming to visit me!

Big hugs,
Sprite

Oh what a great job you have done on your Sphinix. She has such expression in her face and love how you have added textures in her body. The headpiece and bringing the jewels around makes her looks like she is indeed something from the past!

Looking forward to seeing your next piece in the series.

Sprite, this piece is so wonderful!
I love the texture, and the tilt of her head. Your sense of proportion is really good.
You have a natural ability to capture enchantment and the soul of a piece. And your sculpting ability is so very good, too.

Congratulations! She is fabulous!

WOW! Sprite, I feel as tho' I should get your AUTOGRAPH instead of just jabbering on about your amazing talent! This piece is incredible! You could sneak this into a museum display & I would not know it isn't a priceless artifact! BEAUTIFUL, DETAILED, SOUL-TOUCHING!
