Dragons and eyes for New York City

Finally as promised..some images of what I've been working
on....with a little "before" and after. First the new dragon
named Wudaineon by our 9 year old granddaughter who was
just here for a visit. The head as it began - wood and
eye attached via apoxy sculpt:

And the finished head - spokes are wet-formed
goat rawhide:

hind quarters...and end of tail...have to come to
New York to see it as a whole!

Actually I hope to so some serious photography in NYC
..and have a complete image for you on my return..or at
a minimum one of my booth there! Wudaineon is between
4 and 5 feet long.

I'll also have new figures at the show. I've continued
to play with the concept of eyes...and how we "see".
Here are two in beginning stages...

At the last show, a young fan asked if I ever thought
about having the figures stand on their heads. Hmmm
interesting. Thought I'd play with that idea.
Here is the finished head stander.

It's named,"TaDaa". As a friend pointed out to us
this weekend, sometimes if you stand up, stretch
your hands in the air and say "Ta-Da!" the world
seems a happier place!

This new figures "sees" with her/his hands,
feet, chest, and back of the head! Look closely.

Please anyone in the New York City area...come
on over to the American Craft Show NYC at the
Javits Center this Friday-Sunday. Full info at: I'll be in booth
# 132. Would love to see you!!

With Thanksgiving approaching...I send my
thanks to all of you for joining me on this
internet journey .

Journey on! Wendy
