Poppet OrnamentsStarting in 2003 through 2019 have promoted and ran Artistic Figures in Cloth and Clay art convention. The convention and working a full time job, family time and creating art work for several shows a year was a challenge. I finally decided to give somethings up. I wanted to start a new chapter in my life. 2020 it is about family, friends and creating art, in that order! I am leaving my job in July and am no longer running the convention. Giving the accounting job up is not as hard as giving up running an artist convention was difficult.. I made so many friends. The diversity in arts and teachers was inspiring.
I was compelled to stop and created some new designs. Justifying the switch to being okay as I had to present a class to my Art club. This would give the members a choice, an adorable elf or a cute devil. I did finish the Christmas Poppets - Angels, Cats and Elves. I am now working on a theme for Halloween ornaments. I will bring more of them to life as I get them done.
The Poppet ornaments are designed to resemble the European Poppets (puppets) child toys.
