The process starts with laying 6-8 layers of silk fibers over the paper mold of the baby. The Baby in the Tree represents the physical move from Washington State to California and setting down new roots. The original Baby sculpture was created by sculpturing an oil clay image, creating a plaster mold, and then creating the hand made paper sculpture. Originally there were 10 castings of the Baby in the Tree. There is only one more paper mold of that image to use since the plaster mold was destroyed.

Working in fibers is very satisfying to me. I love the tactile feel of the soft silk and building layers to create the feelings of the subject. Born Again is the first in the series of “Journey in Time” representing my story of evolving as an artist.
