Glitter

Glitter has been hurting marine life for years ✨🌟🎨🌟✨Now that laws are helping us transition to glitter safe for consumption. I wanted to celebrate there’s a big victory on behalf of our planet and all of her beautiful creatures in and out of the city.
My original idea was to carve a fish out of the solid chunk of wood. In the process my love for cats to took over. I thought connecting the poisonous aspects of outlawed glitter causing harm towards our domestic pets at home might hit a little closer.
This little cat box is a replica of a large coffee table I created few years ago. I have filled her head and belly with my most treasured objects. As well as some now illegal plastic beads. This work is a celebration of humanity, and how far we’ve come in changing our habits to be better and more respectful towards our animal kingdom family and Mother Earth. ✨🌟🌕🎨💗🕊🌍🕊💐🙌🌕🌟✨
I’ll be live drawing marine life with eatable glitter at our Openning reception as well. I can’t wait to see everyone’s gorgeous goddess faces in a couple of days!!! ✨🌟🌕🙌🌍🕊💗🎨🙏💐🙌🌕🌟✨💋✨🌟💗🌟✨🕊🌍🕊🌟
