Sock Monkey SMASH CAKE Toppers

Sometimes when ambitious party planning moms create fantastic parties for their little ones they have a regular sized cake for the party guests and they also have a very small "smash cake" for the birthday boy or girl to dig into.  This makes for fantastic photo opportunities!  Until recently I had a very tiny mini monkey serving as a smash cake topper in my shop, however at the request of many photo hungry mamas I was asked to make a slightly larger, more photogenic smash cake topper.

So here you have it...

 Smash cake topper with polka dots (and a red balloon add-on) for boys or girls.

and smash cake topper with flowers (and a red balloon add-on if desired) for girls.

The smash cake topper is only 3" tall.  I also made a matching 4.5" topper for the big cakes.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope at your next sock monkey birthday party everyone has a SMASHING good time!

Kama, Fire Dragon Goddess

Guide Sculpture "KAMA"

I want to share my latest sculpture.  Her name is "Kama" and she is a Fire Dragon Goddess who comes around to stir things up and get things moving.
I first saw her while doing intuitive work with a friend and client, and Kama came through as such a strong guide for my friend that I could not stop thinking about her.  She is so dynamic, sometimes I see her riding a dragon or even morphing into a fire-breathing dragon.Kama is a dancer, a fire-spirit, and mover of energy.

 Kama is a OOAK (one of a kind) art doll mixed media sculpture.  Her head, bust, arms and hands are made of polymer clay.

 Her gown is made of various fabrics including vintage silk, a printed Thai cotton, velvet, and tulle.  I used wire and fabric starch to create the spiraling, undulating textures of her firey gown.  

 Her black hair is made of lambs wool, and I used colored feathers in her head dress.

 Her wings have a 14" wing span and they are made of Fantasy Film.  They are dynamically iridescent and look different colors in different types of light.

Kama was so much fun to create, I am looking forward to creating a series of goddesses and guides this year.

Thanks so much for visiting!
