Girl Who Turned Into a Tree

The Girl Who Turned into a Tree

Spirit of the wood;
Take me–make me next of kin
To your leafy brood.

This is from my series of assemblage that are fairy tale inspired. I always loved fairy tales as a child and these are assemblages that I am giving my own stories.
The quote is one from Ethelwyn Wetherford’s wonderful poems.

She is an ethereal being. Her mysterious face is created with an altered image behind a thick lens embellished with mica pieces. Her skirt is copper mesh with a little moss on it. Her arms are copper tubes and doll arms. Her legs are a woody branch.
