The Light Bearer
Ages ago, reading about the most excellent Madame Curie, I was inspired to make The Light Bearer.
I put together the armature and asked Spencer to add some lights.
A lot of things happened so that I didn't get to finish her. She sat on the shelf, patiently waiting to become more of herself.
Last week I was overcome by the urge to do a painting, but knew I should finish our dear Marie.
So I decided to take her into the Mysterious Steam Punk World Poppets love to visit. Perhaps the choice was a matter of communion with Poppets.
I thought you'd like to see her and I'll be happy to answer questions about how she is made.
And yes indeed, once I finally started, she took all the hours and hours I expected, and then a few more.
They were good hours though, and I gave this bit of my life to her willingly, and she shared with me her experience of coming to be. It's a good arrangement.
