What if Alice never left Wonderland? What if she stayed and grew old with her friends? What kinds of adventures and romances would happen upon her? Well, in my first work of an assemblage sculpture piece in many months, I have tackled such an idea. Here we have Alice as an aged woman who still inhabits Wonderland.
I worked with vintage tins, wire, a compass, keys, a cracked porcelain rabbit, a vintage doll tea cup and pot. I created a tiny "drink me" necklace and adorned her with paints, microbeads, beads glitter, children's 1950's cat glasses and an early 80 'Journey' pin to represent her many journeys (not the amazing band with frontman Steve Perry). The matching vintage brooch (a favourite word of mine) and earrings are actually what inspired this piece. The set is celluloid, cerulean majesticness with rhinestone highlights.
And then there is her hair. Yes, her hair took forever. A true labor of love. I hand felted almost all of the balls that make up her gigantic bouffant of wonder. The higher the hair the closer to Wonderland darling. Is it a solid piling of felted balls in every shade of blue and also has become a resting place for her friend the hand felted Cheshire Cat who hangs out closely with the White Rabbit sailing atop her hair in his tea cup. Alice sits upon a wooden block that was painted a lush yellow, sanded and branded with her name. A True Wonder.
Enjoy ~ Paul Moschell
