Have you every met someone for the first time and you can’t help but feel like you’ve met them before? If you mention it, that person usually responds with something like, “yes, I get that a lot.” Well meet Edith. When I created her there was something so familiar about her. Since then, everyone who has seen her feels the same. I’m intrigued and slightly disconcerted at times at that feeling. I cannot explain vibes and auras and feelings (sixth sense type stuff), but I believe in much of that. Something about Edith makes her genuine, kind and friendly. She has joy of life. Maybe what we recognize in Edith is what we look for within ourselves.
I think subconsciously I dressed her in orange for a reason. It combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It is associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics. Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success and encouragement.
Edith is sculpted in Living Doll Polymer Clay and stands 20″ tall. She can be viewed in person at the Orange Art Gallery next week. I’ve tagged a few people who come to mind when I look at her.
