Zurgioch the Last Unicorn

The Cat and Crow ordered another weird wooly creature sculpture from me. That was a while ago. It was summertime, and impossible to find time to do a large creative project without someone asking, “What are you doing? Why are you doing that? Who is it for? That doesn’t look like a unicorn!” Etc. So now that school has finally gone back into session, I had time to do a new wooly creature for the Cat and Crow.

 

Her name is Zurgioch. I don’t know why. That’s just what she told me.  Continue reading Zurgioch the Last Unicorn

Princess Pink Horn will make her debut at the fourth annual Jangle Soapworks Open House on December second, 2016 at the #1 Old School House at 110 North Second Street, in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin. The open house will run from 4 to 8 PM. Our little art show/ local maker fair coincides with Mount Horeb’s annual Festive Eve. The whole town will have great deals on gifts of a higher caliber than you are probably used to. Come and take advantage of good deals on one of a kind art! Or, just buy people the usual crap you get them this time of year. It’s the thought that counts, right?

The Creature Has No Gender, and That Is Good

I visited the Cat and Crow yesterday, and Rebekkah had a question about my most recent art work displayed there,

“We were discussing whether this is a male or a female creature,” she said. “It does have a mustache, but it is also wearing lace, and there is something feminine about it. Then someone said that the dwarf women in Lord of the Rings sometimes have mustaches, so perhaps you were thinking like that?”

To which I replied,

“I don’t think we need to impose our sys-gender societal norms on this art piece. It is neither male nor female. We don’t need to think thoughts in that limiting paradigm of male/ female. The Whatsit simply is what you wish it to be.”

 

I felt very deep and artsy and stuff. Mostly, though, it just has a mustache and lace because I like mustaches, and I like lace. And that is all. But perhaps that is just a different way of saying the same thing?
