It is hard to believe that this lovely lady could arise from a rusty, moldy, tattered collection of paper, ribbon, clay, corragated cardboard along with a little paint and lotsa glue! Her gown was assembled from stamped and torn bits of all the papers in the cage. The sun face, the ribbon and lace were also in that little cage. On May 1st after 3 months in the weather we looked, repackaged and added a few larger pieces, (see photo 2). July 1st all were laid out in the studio to dry and a plan was made and remade! The end result is here for you to see. The little plastic, “you’ll love Lola” was an afterthought as the cat needed a name. Thanks for looking! 


PS.  Look who is curious in photo#3
