Macrame Loses Its Head

Sculptures: "A creative passion of mine is to make heads and masks, so far my repertoire includes; a Chinese head, a Saxon helmet and an elephant. My future plans are for an Egyptian wig and headdress and a North American Indian headdress. I have already worked out how to make feathers with knots and have converted the idea into jewellery (see Feathers page).

Knotted over standard size polystyrene wig stands the heads are eye catching sculptures. I use a lightweight cotton string in natural colour, but I can dye colours if required. Each sculpture takes between 30 to 50 hours to complete depending ion the complexity of the pattern. The heads can be worn as masks and for this you will need to supply specific measurements."

Wow - this is creative! How about a whole body sculpture? Anyone game enough? This is an awesome site - I encourage you to check it out! Thanks Wendy Elizabeth! :)
