Wesleyan Potters Donation 2015 to the Wadsworth Atheneum Festival of Trees

Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art,

"No one has ever become poor by giving" Anne Frank

 

Tis the season as they say and even in the world of non-profit art organization it's time to remember to give and support each other's missions.  Each year the Wesleyan Potters creates a Christmas Tree for the Wadsworth Atheneum's Festival of Lights tree sale fundraiser.

 Our crafts people create ornaments, a topper and a tree skirt.  The trees are auctioned off by the museum to fund their programs and facility.  This year I was asked to create the topper.  I was a little pressed for time and the studio was already closed...but I agreed.  I decided to do one of fiber and upcyled some brocade fabrics, swarovski crystals and wire to create a tree topper.  The entire thing is built up on a tomato cage armature that has been covered in quilt batting and covered in fabric and beaded.  None of the tree colaborators had been in touch be we all came together with a gold theme and the tree looks fab!  

 

Don't forget to check out all of the beautiful trees at the Wadsworth Atheneum this season!

 

Namaste,
Marcy
