Inclusions add a cosmic touch
Chicago’s Marina Rios (FancifulDevices) creates rustic, Victorian, tribal style mixed media assemblages. Her antique and vintage materials are heavily altered and combined with artisan components to create evocative objects.
Marina adds sand, ground and dyed oyster shell, embossing powders, pre-baked and chopped polymer and more as inclusions in the beads that stack up into this Regolith totem.
After firing, she begins painting – back-painting, resist, dry brushing, glazing and more to give this 3.4″ stack of beads its history and mystery.
