Happy Harpy assemblage class at the home studio of Clarissa Callesen, creator of Strange and Wonderful Things.
On a fabulous Sunday in Jan, Ben, Kelly, Shannon, Kim, and Jennifer joined me for a day of laughter and of fabulous creations. Everyone had a great sense of humor and made some really amazing works of art.
Kelly’s Harpy in the process of getting mummified with beautiful ribbons and fibers.
Jennifer’s tail feathers almost done. She used wired ribbon to add spiral texture to her tail along with all the other plumage.
alot people add finishing touches when home
(would love final pictures if any of you have them, please)
check out her blog about her art work
Kim’s fancy girl Harpy
Dang I am not sure who belongs to this
dark and mysterious lady bird. Kim? Jennifer?
and the answer is Kim, she made a sweet harpy and a dark harpy.
Jennifer’s fabulous display of plumage and color
Kelly’s sweet girl dressed in ribbons and beads
Benn Mann’s dark and beautiful pair of Harpies
Benn is a local artist (check his work out if your not familiar)who is know for his very bright and cheerful work. So it was extra fun to get to watch him explore some darker work.
Benn and I have joked about doing a collaborative show called “Perpetually Perky meets Dark and Twisty”.
So that wraps up Happy Harpies. I will be teaching this class again later in the year. Let me know if your interested?
