Shop news, the closing down has begun. My shop Biology Class is going to close as of January 1, 2017. It is time for me to move on from making specimens in such a focused way. I am going to pair my art down to having one shop.
I am going to extend my holiday sale through December 15th still HOLIDAY2016, this works in both shops.
So come get goodies! Everyone wants a Hippopotamus for Christmas. My Hippo and Crocodile ornaments will be posted to my soon to be only shop Sunday at 10am.
Hippopotamus for Christmas
Crocodile Bring the Ham
The Crocodile carries the Christmas Ham because, what else would a Crocodile politely bring to the holiday dinner?
I am also going to post at least two new prints of work I made this year. Red Riding Hood and Tadpole. Maybe Peacock?
Totally excited that I got into SF Bazaar at Maker Faire! Go here for details. It has meant that I am in deep production of many specimens. Here are some works in progress and I prepare them for full preservation. Taking pictures before the caps go on is nice because you get a little more light on their heads.
I’m working on making many small and mini specimens for the show. Here is the first batch. They are all of the amphibian and reptile creature variety.
I am introducing Hippopotamus Specimens to my repertoire. Here are two angles of one of the Hippos.
I am playing with longer specimens within my regular jars. This is a long Diplodocus wrapped a bit around itself to fit into its jar.
Finally for this post of new, the new long vials. They will have amphibians, reptiles, and sharks.
These are the new categories I have gotten to thus far. I have some other ideas I’m hoping to flesh out by May 20th. Now that this update is made, I’m going to get to it!
Designer Con is just around the corner and I’m busy at work preserving and jarring specimens. This year I have Unicorn Fetuses. Unicorns like Rhinos aren’t born with a horn. They have a shaped patch where a horn will eventually grow.
Many specimens are being jarred up. I have dinosaurs, amphibians, fish, lizards and more.
Also, it is hoped that I will have ceramic specimens. This is still in-a-work in progress stage so, they may only come available after Designer Con. More will be known in the following weeks.
For now, if you want a specimen accessory for Halloween check out my etsy shop. I posted a couple necklaces, a set of earrings and a few specimens.
Well I had a baby 6 weeks ago and in 1 week I’m participating in APE. I couldn’t wait to participate in APE when the year began but, I didn’t quite realize how close it came to my baby’s birth. However, I’m not going to let that stop me from making new work! To celebrate I decided to get some new jars to provide a whole new set of Specimens for the show. Here is the first round of the new creatures:
I have long thin corked jars:
and shorter-smaller wide corked jars:
and micro jars!
I am so excited for these new sizes. These new jars woke me up creatively and I hope you all like the outcome. I kind of don’t want to let these little guys go but, I’m sure each will find a good home.
