I'm back to creating after a two-month hiatus. Inspired by my recent trip to Tucson, AZ, I decided to create a few new Southwestern style assemblages. All of them use silver plate roll top butter dishes or vegetable dishes for the horse's bodies. The horse heads are from salt or pepper shakers, and the various cowgirl, cowboy, Native American chief and Native American squaw bisque figures are vintage 1940s and "Made in Japan." Each piece is uniquely adorned with various Western or Native American style accessories and some have gemstones for saddles and/or animal companions. If you are interested in purchasing a piece, simply click on the photo and it will direct you to where you may purchase it! Here they are:
Below are my older Southwestern assemblages, all made within the past two years. Some of them use old or reproduction tins, metal jello molds, or cheese graters for horse or cow bodies. The cow heads are also vintage salt or pepper shakers.

I am 56 years old, a wife of 25 years, a mother of a wonderful and independent 17-year-old daughter, a clinical psychologist who treats adults in private practice, and last, but definitely not least, an artist. Whew! That was a mouth full. My passion is creating one-of-a-kind whimsical sculptural animals, dolls, and cake toppers (with a little multi-media collage thrown in for good measure). I hope you enjoy my creations as much as I enjoy making them!
