You must be a member of the Indiana Bead Society to enter.
Use a common household object (kitchen utensil, cleaning
tool, hardware, toy, and car part), item(s) collected in
thrift stores, item(s) from a vacation, or any item you choose
to create a "goddess" image. Use this object along with beads
and any other media to finish your form. Use the object as
your base and embellish. The idea is that by having a "base"
object from which to work, it will not require so much
beadwork. Goddess figures can get very complicated. Hopefully
the use of a central object will help with the creativity and
diversity of the pieces as well as reduce the total time
needed to complete the piece.
What goddess are you? Would you say you are... a dreamer
with her head in the clouds, a practical person who is
grounded in reality? For you, every day is...? Some great
sources of inspiration are Belle Armoire Magazine,
Art Doll Quarterly Magazine, and the Internet. Just type
in "goddess" and you can find vast amounts of information
regarding "goddess" types and images of women.
Three categories for judging:
The best use of a found object
The best "Goddess" image
The best over-all execution
Prizes: a free one-year IBS membership, a free one-day IBS
sponsored workshop tuition, plus a surprise prize!
