muriel babies










well dear readers...
I hope you have already ordered your
latest issue of

Pasticcio 12
but if you haven't you can go



Muriel Babies


I have an assemblage
published in this issue
a piece near and dear to my heart ....
and for those of you
who never had children or who have lost a child...
you will understand
the meaning of this
very personal shrine...

the tiny frozen charlotte wears a little death mask
made of paper clay
and the shrine is made from
an antique cigar box...




there are tiny bones made of paper clay
lining the edge of the shrine and a painted skelly on the sides
of the box...

this piece was created for a
collection of work that I presented
in a collaborative show
at Two Graces for

I am thrilled
that Sarah and Angela
liked it too...






this is a great issue...
well...
all their issues are great, but
there are a lot of wonderful articles
by blog friends...
and as always it is chockfull
of surprises




alrighty then...
I am off to the studio
to create more art...
I am sadly waaay behind on my
work
but I will have lots to show you soon..

ciao, ciao!

I really like this assemblage. As someone who has never had children, I understand the symbolism. Congrats on being published in their magazine.

This is a wonderful zine, I've always enjoyed it congrats on being published in it. To your comment on my blog re Bisbee yes it is hot but not as hot as Scottsdale, my mom lives in Scottsdale and went with me to Bisbee to cool down!!!

Indeed Caterina, congratulations on being published. I do feel like I miss out over here in France being so far away from these wonderful publications!! Thank you for hanging in with me. Each time I think I am well and truly back to blogging - I skip away again. I love what you do and make a mental note to remind myself not to stay too long away from the cyber world. YOu are indeed an inspiration.

I so get this. We lost twin sons thirty years ago and just visited their memorial trees in the Black Hills this week. Though I have a lovely daughter, this is something that will always, always be part of me. Thanks so much for sharing!
