Assemblage - The Patron
This is a mixed media assemblage made from wood, hardware, metal, clay, and tin. The most interesting part of this doll are the arms. Inspiration from a book by
Jane Wynn had me on a scavenger hunt to our local indoor shooting range to collect empty bullet casings. I wasn't sure what I was going to find, but it was well worth the trip. I used the casings on the upper part of the arms. Her arms are also moveable. I enjoy the challenge of creating something that has moving parts.
Patina was used throughout the doll.
