this is what you get when you watch the first 15 minutes of JAWS at age 5.
here's the piece of i've submitted to Joetta Maue's Down To Sleep show opening soon in Lawrence, Massachusetts. check link for details.
TITLE: nightshift gallery – Act I
MEDIUM: applique, embroidery, garment construction
SIZE: 24” x 30” [girl’s size 7]
Two constants throughout my life have been sewing machines + monsters.
Sewing, is a magical process that allows me to make flat materials 3-dimentional or stitch together any combination of elements. As a medium, it possesses limitless possibility regarding form, method and application. Either by hand or machine, I choose sewing because it is my inheritance.
The combination of girlie and non-girlie elements is a particular favorite. Nightmares, a preoccupation with fear, and an ongoing obsession with horror films and fairy tales are forever present. I love monsters because they are never what they seem.

this is the summer of NEW... new etsy items, new adventures in at-home product photography + a couple new projects here at Baking with Medusa. i will elaborate more on all these topics down the road.
for now i'd just like to share a couple of images featuring one of my new esty items - the Curio Coinpurse, a handbag with a tiny window… displaying a tiny keepsake trapped inside. this particular clutch i made for myself, but i've got lots more tiny toys + vintage fabrics to work with here in the Medusa factory.

i suppose it's a bit crazy to spend 18 hours building a pinata knowing full well it will be decimated in less than 10 minutes. i think that is what i like best about pinatas, their temporary nature... and watching the candy fly.
