In honor of Harry Potter’s birthday, the Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana is planning a day filled with “magical” objects and birthday cake! Join us July 29 to shop for wands, magic-themed artwork, unique jewelry, and more! The items will be available at the Arts Council during the Saturday event and for a limited time afterward
On July 29th a selection of masks, wands, sculptures, jewelry, paintings, and other artwork will be available at the Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana – in honor of Harry Potter’s birthday!
(they tell me there will also be cake)
My contribution will include:
Three paper pulp Gargoyle masks
They have been hand pressed from my original molds, padded with felt lining, and strung with elastic cord. These were a limited run of masks produced early on, so they are the only 3 of their kind in existence.
Three artist wands with ‘artist brush cores’
The wands were up-cycled from worn-out well-loved paint brushes then coated in a layer of Smooth-on Freeform air (if you are a sculptor you should check out the medium)
I gave them handmade tags detailing the lenght, name, and materials of each crafted wand.
And One Skull and Snakes ‘dark mark’ inspired ink drawing
The artwork comes framed and has been detailed with gold ink to highlight the snakes’ shimmering scales. A work-in-progress shot is shown below~
