Main-et-Loire, Bleu du Maine Sheep...French Home

 Writer and Artiste of Burlap Luxe

Created in wire forms and cartapesta.
Fashioned after, and wanting them to feel as if
they had been artiste created in the 
19th century.

Hand sculpted BurlapLuxe One-of-A-Kind
Blue-du-Maine Sheep,
a domestic breed originated 
in Western France.

I have painted the faces rustically, in decay to take on 
an old world look and feel to this flock of
French bleu faced sheep.
 I design and create around my French cottage;
 inspired from within.
 A rustic style does not have to lack in 
value or beauty..

After the body and legs of primitive style are created,
I mummy wrap them in cloth to emulate their hide.
Then sheared in livestock virgin sheeps
wool.

This flock of 5 would look great corralled in a
holiday display, or placed in a rural farmhouse
collection.

Here at Burlap Luxe, my French cottage home,
is where pieces that have become tired in their use;
become something of better use.

I took and marked off the sides of this 100 plus year old
desk. Cutting each end off to the surface desk top, I
then used salvage old wood planking the surface;
turning a desk into a side table.

I have created more function and use from an old desk that
once sat in a space for looks and storing clutter.

Yes, this French iron lantern from a Malibu California,
seaside homes estate sale I placed dibs on in seconds of spotting it.
 I extended the wiring adding a toggle switch and plug to
the end, it then became my added lighting.

Statement piece? indeed.

Gosh!!! Doré!!! THIS is... They are SO wonderful! These sheeps. Could not read the post, I will do that later, but THESE fellows, your sheeps with cartapesta - genius!!!
My sweet, they have the charme of ancient days, of fairy-tale-christmas! And they are MADE like in old times! Oh, they are so wonderful! What a fantastic idea, and then they jumped out your creative hands. You really flashed me once again.
Doré, I will add this to my clickboard, where I show the artists, I adore. May I?

Doré,
Captivating sheep that Shepard’s tend, herd and protect at Christmas time. Beautifully created and will enrich someone’s home in unique artistic individualism. I have a vintage sheep herder nutcracker gifted by John nearly 25 years ago. The sheep is adorable and the Shepard has a shoulder pouch with a bottle of wine in it! It always brings a smile to my face.
The sheeps faces speak peacefulness in your amazing talent, love them.
xoxo.
