Tiger Stripes

Dark Brown glass is the first to go onto the tiger.
Yipes stripes!
Tiger can see now, too, so watch out.

Rock Pot

Many of these rocks were gathered in Michigan.
Some I gathered while visiting my brother and sister in law in Northport, Michigan.
A windy walk on the beach day.

Deco Pot

I made the pot first, then added granite tiles. First attempt at this shape of pot.

So Pretty!

She gets a lot of attention from folks driving past the studio.
Pretty wonderful, yeah?

Party

We had a coming  out party for our lady, here she is being unveiled! October, 2010.

Slow Slow....

Careful now, lower her down slowly. Garden Lady settles into the garden.

She is on the move!

Thank you Bill for helping move our Garden Lady to her display location!
9885 West Ann Arbor Road, Plymouth Michigan, here we come.

Debut

We moved her around on a trolley.

Background

Once all the flowers are placed, it is time to finish the background color and stems.
She has skin colored cement from dying the cement before adding to the sculpture.

Tiling

Dress design begins with some tile flowers. Pretty!

Hair-Do

Nice wiry hair gets fashioned onto our lady. Needs some styling gel?

Cement is added.

Once the wire sculpture is finished, cement is pushed carefully onto the shape.

Garden Lady is Created.

Wire Sculpture is shaped from rebar and heavy wire. Her head is placed in this photo.

Mosaic Work Withstands the Coldest Day of the Winter!

Here is our Garden Guardian withstanding the coldest temps yet,
 -4 this morning and she still stands waiting for spring.
Thanks to our neighbor who donated a mink stole
which she now wears-(after this photo was taken).
