The Hatchling

My most recent fascination has been with pumpkin creatures. The Hatchling has been artistically the most challenging piece I have made yet. The base of this monument is made with plywood that I coated with a thin layer of celluclay. It is much heavier and more durable than Foamboard, which is a staple in the world of making tombstones. The Pumpkin and emerging creature are made with pulp mache and celluclay. Real pumpkin seeds were used along with stretchy spider webs to make the pumpkin guts.
