Sugar Skull Altar #3 - "All The Things [I Love]"
Sugar Skull Altar #3 - "All The Things [I Love]" - 8.75" x 11" x 3"
This altar represents many things that bring me joy: being out in nature and hiking, art appreciation and creation, working with my hands, butterflies, transformation, birds, color and texture, memories, new life, reflections, and what is inside.
Made with lasered wood, handmade copper hinges and copper bar, laser handprinted butterfly, dove feather from my backyard, handmade and hand-painted polymer clay "eggs", found from a central Texas hike, baling wire, and stone.
My mixed media series of mini altars represents many of my internal desires, affinities, personal growth direction, and life goals.
I am currently experiencing a great deal of change personally and professionally. I chose to incorporate sugar skulls as a way to focus on personal reflection, as well as a symbol to look forward to positivity and transformation.
For me, the sugar skulls represent facets of my spirituality and personality, and are not intended to be associated with any organized religion. They also represent reflection on the past and allow me to invite new experiences.
