Our October 2016 cxhibit is a group of Monster Dolls, made by Social Fabric students (ages 12 to 70) and staff. We often have our Monster Doll Class and we get together and make crazy looking dolls from fabric scraps, buttons, stuffing, etc.
THIS time, I thought it would be fun to give a "nod" to the older ceramic head/hands/feet dolls and incorporate ceramics and fabric into dolls, BUT - the goal was to make them for October, a traditionally "monster-oriented" time.
I contacted Deb, at Baker Creek Ceramics with my idea and she said "let's do it".
So, one weekend, we (students and staff) met at Baker Creek Ceramics and made heads, hands, feet, flippers, etc. out of paper clay, which is much lighter form of clay. We also glazed our creations at that session.
One week later, Deb delivered the fired ceramic Monster pieces to Social Fabric and we got the students and staff together to make the bodies.
You only have to take a look at the results to see what kind of fun/creativity/chaos ensued. This was more fun than a barrel of monkeys! Note, many are for sale. Contact us if you see anything you simply MUST have!
