Hanging Dead Project II

Hanging Dead Project II, from our show at Prairie. After making the navy squirrels, we went back to our old stand by - white. Mike also made the branches a little more streamlined, so they read as brackets rather than trees.. Although, a lot of people asked about the "rats", so who knows? Same varmint family. Details shots below.

Porcelain, china paint, luster, with die cut paper tails.

Close up

A close up of Mike's china painting skills - this harlequin pattern squirrel is pretty amazing! I love the way the image stretches across the back and arms....

opening night at Model Citizens NYC

We have been crazy busy setting up for our solo show that opens this Friday in Cincinnati, so we were unable to attend Design Week this year. Luckily my brother was able to stop by the Model Citizens opening party on Saturday night and snap some pictures of our work and the giant crowds of people! Core 77 did a nice write up here.

"Hanging Dead Project I" made its official debut and we could not be happier with the result.

We are busy installing all this week, but stay tuned for "Hanging Dead Project II" plus a new chandelier that really takes the cake.
