weird object saturday,otherwise known as weird object friday for procrastinators

I had a great visit to the Carroll Arts Center's Tevis Gallery. They had a Member's Exhibit that was spectacular. Who knew all these talented people lived nearby.'Vonnegut' , mixed media by Will Landon. I read in the Carroll County Times that he was inspired by "Breakfast of Champions" and how humans are mind controlled by a greater being.
This is '3 Faces of Clay' by Jeannette Dowling. I think they could join our coffee cup companions exposed in a past weird object display.
Having had Ravens training camp break this week, I thought this was appropriate to display.
Margaret you will love this, it is a felted wool vase.
This was my favorite. I could never wear it, it needs a long neck and I am not too sure about a snake around my neck. But it really is eye catching.

You're right. I love the felted vase.
The Vonnegut one is very striking. I like it. I loved his books when I was a teen.

"Vonnegut" is my favorite. Chris and I have read almost everything he has written.

I am always in awe of how an artists mind works. What makes the idea form? From thought to design to implementation, amazing!
