In the studio...



I have decided to create my Wyoming dress with the abundant willow that grows along Lower Piney Creek on the Jentel property. Willow is a very pliable material for sculpture, regenerates quickly when cut, and the cut branches will even grow again if you stick them back into the ground! I am creating a dress that will float on the creek, Ophelia-style. Here I am in my studio at Jentel, building the bodice and connecting willow branches with biodegradable twine to form the massive skirt.
