MY PLAY HOUSE - cardboard construction and Coiled Paper structure sculpture. This house was an idea given me by a Gallery in Charlotte who's doing an architectural thematic show and asked me to come up with something architectural. The first thing that came to mind is the play house I wanted to build for my children when they were little and that dream never got satisfied... Now it has in my sculpture. I used a large variety of different sized coils in density and in depth plus I also molded some of the coils into concave shapes and I started twirling some thicker paper into tubes to add more visual and tactile texture to the piece. The roof has a mix of coils and flat strips of rolled paper, I have covered the flat strips with encaustic to give it density and add one more mix to this media. The structure I built out of cardboard that I covered with paper-mache` for strength, for the interior I chose music pages to ad whimsy (as if that was possible) and covered it with a thin wash of warm amber acrylic, ever so gently.

Measures: 16" tall, 8" wide and 6" deep
