It’s that time again! Tori has created another fabulous piece for RAnnDomized – but wait, we need to keep this one on the down-lo since this work of art is Tori’s birthday gift to her dad. But wait! Tori’s dad doesn’t know about this blog – and I really can’t wait to share this with you all so for those of you who know Mr. W, hush up!
RAnnDomized presents: Angelfish
For those of you interested in the creation process, Tori used a standard origami fold for the angelfish, using a square of white cotton fabric, rather than paper. She then ironed the material to make the creases and used acrylic paints (silver, black and pearlescent) to recreate the markings of a real angelfish. When it was completely dry, she glued a metallic blue wire between the folds that make up the tail, and coiled the rest of the wire to form the base. To give the piece stability and weight, she fabricated a pebble from air drying clay and pressed the coiled wire into it. When it was dry, she eased most of the coil free of the clay so it popped up in an interesting way. What do you think of the final piece? Personally, it reminds me of Dali – I love it almost as much as I love The Man!
Tori’s done a few pieces for me thus far – which is your favorite?
