Project Description

Haute Couture Fairy

This was my first time to blend both hard and soft mediums and I absolutely loved the process…..this piece was on exhibit with The Gaylord Texan Resort, as my 3rd year to be featured by them in their summer long exhibit. I was one of 10 artists chosen. I sculpted the body and then prepared it for thousands of hand cut pieces of glass as well as hundreds of hand cut layers of organza which form the skirt……one of my happiest moments in art was when installing this piece, a woman asked me if this was a part of the Christian Dior exhibit, as it was on view at the Dallas Museum of Arts at the same time……despite the femininity of this piece, it is a favorite of men, down to those wearing cowboy boots and a hat!
