The 17th Tweedle


Now that I’ve secured a place in Crawford College of Art and Design, I’m busy getting ready to move to Cork, finding art supplies and sorting out all the stuff associated with college life. Since I’m currently focused on the move back into Cork, I won’t be posting much artwork until I’m settled into my new college. I will try to post something each week, but my schedule might be a little more erratic.

Anyhow, today I thought I’d share with you a photo of the 17th Tweedle.

When I make my Tweedle sculptures, I always make them in ‘generations’ of 8 Tweedles each. This one, however, I created a while ago for a dear friend’s birthday.

It’s the only one to date that has not belonged to a generation. It’s also the only one to possess a miniature metal fan and have it’s own personalized blue-jay feather.

When I was creating it, I perceived it as an experimentation into how Tweedles might decorate themselves, mimicking the way their human masters cloth themselves. I also wanted to capture the sort of playfulness that Tweedles develop over time.

I hope you like this sculpture, and thanks for reading!
