Title: The Goat King
Description: Fiona has been working on this piece for 8 months. After her "Hot Dog Dressed as a Hotdog", she was very inspired. This piece is built in three pieces with painted wooden sticks, which she measured and cut herself, holding up the goat's body. The sticks are reinforced on the base at the entry holes with epoxy so they won't shift. The crown was Fiona's first foray into Sculpey Polymer clay, constructed around a foil armature, which she left exposed so it looks like silver edging in the crown. The jewels are Schwarzkopf crystals which were donated to our studio. (The Goat is a king, so he needed real crystals). If juried in, the crown should be hung so it's over both horns and one, either one. ear
