I wanted to use driftwood as a rustic frame to hold an encaustigraphic collage. “Love for Trees in Midwinter” is the result. I also incorporated polymer clay, stone and glass to make this quite an assemblage of colorful and natural materials.
This encaustigraphic mandala leads off a suspension of playful pieces made from a variety of materials. The e*graphics process combines well with other materials, including beads, polymer clay (especially translucent varieties), driftwood, wire, and found objects. Although the main circle is 8″ in diameter, it is extremely lightweight and moves beautifully in the breeze.
