Where did THAT come from ! ! !

Introducing a new creation: Oberon.

Out of the blue, minding my own business, as the saying goes, this creation popped into my visually thinking mind, and it begged to be concretized.

That’s how I create.

So here is Oberon, made from sheet metal, galvanized steel mesh, stainless steel and yes, cat hair. And special cat hair to boot! Luna’s! She was feeling a little left out, Gaia getting all the attention, so this one was made using only the softest Luna hair, the hair I brushed from her gorgeous white Elizabethan collar.

Then, to compliment her beautiful soft white hair, I choose sheet metal, for its strength and gray color. Also referred to as mild steel, it’s made from carbon and iron, but mostly iron. I love it!  Why?  Because it rusts. This is the part I like, it rusts, adding a patina, or character to the metal’s flat surface. I didn’t keep all the rust, I sanded away most, but its presence is still felt.

Anderson explained, “This is balls of hair with wire around it.”

Fulton added, “Yeah, this is all from one cat!”

Anderson turned to the audience and asked if anyone wanted to try on the cat jewelry. Would you wear cat jewelry?

The Vote is IN … Yes. It’s cat-tastic!–54%          No. Me-ouch. –45%

And what does Gaia think about all this? His response? Hey! What’s all the fuss about?
