I’ve been hoarding these fiber and polymer clay portraits by Dayle Doroshow. I have fond memories of her building these collages bit by bit over several days, her sewing machine purring quietly in the corner of the messy polymer workshop. I’m intrigued by the combinations and wonder about their stories.
Dayle has wonderful ways of showing groups how to evoke memory and meaning which are then translated into work. More than techniques and tools, it’s those skills that infuse our art with power.
Take a look at what the Etsy guild members came up with in their self-portrait challenge. Maybe it’s time to challenge yourself to create a meaningful piece.
