This angel is an original, one of a kind, art doll.
The challenge was to make a doll representative of New York.
Lakes, rivers and waterways for commerce, transportation,
agriculture and recreation are extremely important to our state.
My friend and I were in Oswego, on Lake Ontario, on a cold wintry
day. The sky and water were both gray. The air felt icy even though
there was no snow. We were early for a meeting and decided, quite
naturally, to spend time in a fabric store. We were discussing
challenge ideas and she suggested I create a winter water angel and
picked up two perfectly suited fabrics.
My vision was of a figure rising from the waves, combining the idea
of water, ice and snow.
Her face is sculpted from polymer clay. She is 13 inches tall and
weighs almost 3 pounds.
