This fluffy pink tail is really a lethal weapon!
"The aim of this campaign is for you to share your creative craft skills with another craft blogger, by creating an item for them and sending it via a prepaid DHL courier box."So when Nicky sent me this little chap I thought wire sculpture instead of a piece of jewellery would do this "cute" creature justice. Out came the aluminium wire I have used before for trees and the Wire Sculpture Fairy I made in July. Aluminium wire is not very good for most of my jewellery but the qualities that don't work for jewellery are ideal for sculptures! Its so soft and manageable that I can bend, wind and wrap it in so many different ways.
This Rabbit (Or if you think he looks more like a hare then Hare) was wrapped free hand. I had no template from a previous sculpture because I have never made a rabbit before. I just had a couple of pictures on a screen in front of me to make sure I was creating a bunny and not inventing a whole new species!
Eve Marshall. So this new skill came in handy and he got himself a fluffy felted tail. And it just had to be shocking pink!
He still looked a bit lost. So I gave him his own little piece of rock with enough grass to keep him content. Its a piece of flint collected during our travels and he is perched on it quite comfortably don't you think?
Yesterday a lovely man from parcel.dhl.co.uk came to collect him and he is now off to live with crochet artist Izabela Motyl and inspire her to create something for the next blogger in the Chinese Whispers chain.
I have not given him a name. I will let his new adopted family think of one. Just remember Izabela, every time you look at him this is what he is thinking..
