Art of the Day: Wednesday February 19, 2014


- by Sherry Key

This week's theme: Beads

Beads are often used to create art. Beautiful, handcrafted beads are art. And some art combines both.

Art: THE GOOD MOTHER by Artist Sherry Key

Good mothers are saintly to me. My mother is a saint. She is going through trials and tribulations right now, But through it all she is a faithful churchgoer and servant of God.

She once told me she and I were soul mates. Now you can't get a better compliment as a daughter...than that. I dedicate this to "The Good Mother" in my life, my Mom.

Polymer clay, glass beads and heat forged copper wire. Figure is completely hand sculpted. The subtle design on the clothing was made with stamps I made myself out of clay. Glass beads are encrusted on the headpiece. Heart shaped, stained wood stand. You have to anneal the wire just right to get the bright reds and pinks on the beaded ends.
