Día de los Muertos 2022

A limited run for this year, they are currently living in the Mom N Pop Art Shop in Richmond CA and they are for sale.

Día de los Muertos – Day of the Dead –

“In Mexico, death rites date from pre-Hispanic rituals represented in murals, painted pottery, monuments, and artifacts, which shows how the Day of the Dead has its origins in the rituals practiced by the indigenous peoples of the Americas. Its precedents date to more than 3000 years ago when the Olmecs and subsequent Toltecs, Mixtecs, Zapotecs, Maya, and Aztecs honored death.”  — The Mexican Museum

Inspired by traditional Mexican celebrations, I decided to create a limited run of calaveras using dimensional paper layers.  These guys have gone to their temporary home in historic Pt Richmond, CA – Mom N Pop Art Shop

NOTE – these are unframed, mats only.

 

Bag One – Ground Zero, Really

The original prototype bag – this is it.

Bag Five – Mini Bucket Bag – Zebra Print Chenille

I really can’t decide if the correct idea is to pet it or carry it around.

Bag Seven – Embellished Maximalism

The benefits of actually doing some maths become crystal clear on this build.

Bag Three – Finding My Own Shapes

Bag Three turned out to be a real stunner – an intriguing set of textures and patterns. It’s a pity that I don’t have more pics of it, but sometimes that’s just the way it works out.

Bag Six – Parisienne Party Bag

Intriguing shape and lots of custom detailing make this bag a party stunner!

Bag Five – The Original Micki

I built Bag Five -the original Micki – as a gift for my BFF. She wanted a bag that was durable, not too big, and with some specific features.

Bag Nine – The Metropolitan Tote

For two solid months, I couldn’t figure out what this scrap was trying to tell me.

Bag Eight – Circle Shaped Hotness

I started putting the pieces together and the next thing you know I had a round bag face, staring back at me.
