NEFERTITI EGYPTIAN GODDESS PLANTER

NEFERTITI EGYPTIAN

GODDESS PLANTER

Nefertiti Egyptian Planter

I’ve been sculpting away every day trying to get ready for next spring’s Goddess planter presentation. Last year, as I noted in a previous posting, I sold out of the planters after a few showings and wished I had started a few months earlier. I usually start in January.

The planters have taken on lots of new twists this time around. I’m even doing theme type Goddesses. My Egyptian planter is a first. Although most of my planters can be left outdoors all summer, Nefertiti must be kept inside or in a screened porch area because of the cloth draping around her body.

It would probably be a good idea to invest in a snake like plant to go along with the Egyptian theme for when I show her in the spring.

I’ll be teaching how to make planters and Goddess standing sculptures at my class next July. There are 3 spaces left with only a deposit required at this time to hold your place. Please check out the Faces class for all information on my residential sculpture classes.

  8. I am always in awe of your planters, but you have added yet another facet with your cloth wrap. True mixed media. And of course, the snake plant (or Sansevieria) is a logical plant choice, although it doesn't look too much like a real snake to me.

  9. Hi Cheryl! This is the first time I saw one of your planters with real cloth. The cloth really matched the piece. I also love the black circular necklace she has in her chest. So amazing!
