This is my latest dark sculpture, a “Bat Fairy”. The wings took me quite some time to make! They are wire based, then covered with silk chiffon, then the fabric is gently stitched to the wire. Finally, they were embellished with silver/black fibers. They took me about 3 hours to complete and they are posable. Her wing span is approximately 12″ (6″ each wing). She can fly beautifully!
She is crouched low to the ground as she has just landed and is waiting to seize her prey— it’s dinner time. Vampire bats locate a host, land and then approach by foot.
Her hair is Tibetan lambswool in black. Her ‘bat skirt’ is black silk chiffon decorated with beautiful black sparkly fibers.
Her base is wooden, then painted black. I have applied a special marbelized finish on the top in black, purple and blue. The side is trimmed in beautiful edging. The underneath of the base is finished with a nice black felt.
Look for her in my Etsy Shop July 21st at approximately 4pm EST.
