It sure is!! I have been away from my work in the dungeon way toooo long! Life, it always trumps me being in my favorite place, doing what I love.
So what am I working on now? Wabbits! What? Oh the Skelleton, he's sitting on my work table glaring at me. We just weren't seeing eye to eye so we decided to take a break from each other.
Now for the rabbit. I had to do some combining of gourds for this piece. A friend of mine who lives in Kansas grows the most amazing gourds. This dipper gourd had a twisted handle and to me looked like a rabbit's ears wrapped around each other.
I didn't like the size of the bottom of the gourd so I snapped the handle off and attached it to another gourd.
After sculpting the rabbit's face I decided the ears were too long, so again I snapped the handle off.
With an exacto knife I cut it down to size and reattached it to the head.
I then added a big foil bow to the base of the ears.
Now my rabbit is ready to be painted. I mixed too much clay so I made a rabbit ornament that will also get painted .
Does the gourd handle look like wrapped rabbit ears to you?
