Glitter Man

13 Flares 13 Flares ×

Playful, that was what came to mind as I purchased three wagon pull toy boxes in birch with red plastic wheels.  Playful glitter, sparkle, and more glitter.  I wanted to create something playful and childlike in these toy boxes and in the first one we have Glitter Man.  Not sure what’s up with these listening ears but they seem to be talking to me, an ear/tongue perhaps?  The dancing gypsy, well maybe he is listening to her! Oh and a polymer clay eye, thanks to what I learned from my class with Judy Shea, one of the most playful people I know….
