Sarajane Helm organizes monster swaps of miniature masks. The one she’s just sorting and mailing exchanged the works of 100 artists. Every participating artist makes ten masks which must each fit inside a three inch by three inch square. Other details are left up to the individual artist.
The designs of the masks are wild and varied (the ones here are from Valerie Aharoni). Even more amazing is the organizing and packaging that Sarajane has mastered to make these events happen.
The masks from swaps in 2001-2006 will be featured in her upcoming book “The Art Of Polymer Clay Masks” due out in Fall 2007. Melanie West has some of her swap contributions posted on her site too.
