Consider that everything around you is a source for sculpture.
Try making quick pieces using whatever you have around you in the moment.
Okay...so, when I read this I was sitting in my art room. I opened a drawer filled with wood pieces, thinking I would see if anything in there inspired me to make a sculpture. I saw packs of chopsticks that I get whenever I order sushi. I thought those would be perfect for a tepee. Not just any tepee...a faerie tepee!
Chopsticks in the wood drawer. These were the inspiration for the Faerie Dream Tepee
*~Faerie Dream Tepee ~*
Detail of the top. I used only what I had on hand. Besides the chopsticks, I used canvas fabric that I painted with acrylic and watercolor to make the covering of the tepee. The base was a piece of styrofoam covered with moss and trimmed in small river rocks. The top included dried wildflower heads, quail feathers and paper butterflies. The final touch was a wood sign and a sticker with the word Dream.
Shhh...do not disturb the sleeping faerie! She lays on a bed of Spanish Moss. The faerie is one from my collection. Somehow, she found her way to this magical tent right after I finished making it!
Back detail. A large sun and yellow butterfly add to the happiness of the tepee.
*If anyone is interested in purchasing this cute little faerie tepee (minus the faerie, of course!), it will be available in my Etsy shop.
