Soft Sculptures For the Hard Hearted

When Plush Comes to Shove

Schmancy’s Plush You exhibit will be opening this week, October 14 from 5-9 pm. If you live in or around the Seattle area, you should definitely check out the show in person; there are going to be many wonderful plush treasures to gawk at (and BUY)! And for those of you who live elsewhere, the work will be available to view and purchase online as well.

Here is a preview of the three pieces I submitted to the show!

First we have “Hostess with the Mostest”! A former horror hostess who was blackballed from the business, this fine-looking dame skulks around her cavernous Hollywood home pining for the past. Her long boa keeps her scantily clad chest warm, and her skull friend Yorick keeps her in good company.

Next up is “Imaginary Friend”. Billy is a bit timid when it comes to making friends with other boys his age (Mom calls it “Juvenile Social Anxiety Disorder”) and finds it hard to talk to other kids. To alleviate his loneliness, Billy invented a pal named Jasper who knows him better than anyone else. Unfortunately, Jasper has been diagnosed as claustrophobic and needs some extra breathing room.

Finally, we have something a little different than the usual Croshame antigurumi mayhem. I combined crochet and canvas to create this two-faced Clown Box, representing the best of times and the worst of times.

    • I wish I could make it to the opening to see all the fantastic feats of plushtastic wonder (including yours). Oh well. I’ll just have to settle for reading second-hand accounts and gawking at Flickr pics!

  3. Damn! Your work is amazing. I love, love, LOVE your Vampira! I’ve been trying to create a female body template and you have nailed the curves I aspire to.
