glass feather


This is a 3D mixed media piece I created for an art show a month ago.

This beautiful tentacled creature has her mascara-ed eyelash and lipstick on just for you while she burlesques her way into your heart (or into your pants? …. Or your skull…?). I lovingly call her “Peep Show.”

She consists of glass, wood, plastic, paint, feathers, and slate. There are 30+ eyes, 30+ feathers, a slate base, and a (facsimile) diseased human skull. All eyes are hand-painted. She is 30" tall, 30" long, 9" wide.

She is for sale and if you’re interested, I can list her on Etsy. I am bringing her to The Boneyard Market next week so speak now! PM me.

Yes I know some of them are a little fuzzy, I didn’t have camera and had to make do with my phone.  I thought they were still good enough to be in my top 10.  Let me know if you want to see more pictures. I have a bunch that I would like to post but are lower quality than these.

Please, do not repost these anywhere and please do not remove my watermark/copyright thing.  I worked very hard to get these pictures and posted them for the enjoyment of others!

The episode “Bride of Chaotica!” offered viewers–and Star Trek: Voyager’s cast–a delightful black-and-white side trip into an era when science fiction wasn’t quite so polished. The story primarily takes place on the starship’s holodeck, a recreational area where the crew can interact with realistic holographic projections. Due to a misunderstanding with alien life-forms from another dimension, several of Voyager’s crew members are forced to assume the identities of fictional characters in order to save the ship. The most outrageous of these characters, both in appearance and behavior, is Arachnia, Queen of the Spider People. And who better to portray her than Voyager’s Captain Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew).

As soon as he read the script, Robert Blackman knew just what to weave for the Spider Queen’s attire. “I told Kate, ‘We need to think of Arachnia as a ‘30s vamp. She’s a spider lady.’ We had a great fitting and I made a copper-beaded dress that made her look like a million bucks. The fabric was on a silk base. It was beaded, the whole thing, solid, with little copper glass beads and feathered shoulder pieces. And the neckpiece was wire built on plastic, with black, metallic beads.”
