I have to confess that I like it that people come to me for some unusual (goofy?) projects.
The process of figuring out HOW to do it is very satisfying.
Recently a good friend, and a person who also enjoys goofy projects, asked me to make something for his niece, who had just gotten her Ph.D in genetic abnormalities. He wanted seven fingered gloves. So we got some stretchy silver fabric, and VOILA!
The university where I worked also contacted me one time. They have a LARGE statue on campus, by Ruth Duckworth, called “Serenity”, and they wanted a graduation gown for it! That was quite a challenge, and ended up being a poncho with zippers up the back in two places. The male and female figures are joined at the hip, so to speak, so couldn’t wear separate gowns.
The mortar boards were made by someone else, but the birds are actually a part of the sculpture!
