King, Queen, Jack of Spades - 2017 handcrafted one-of-kind
ORIGINAL ONE OF A KIND ART
Years ago I created a set of playing cards for my dad. This was possibly my very first design project. Since then I have been mesmerized by the symmetry and simplistic design. However in my mind I always envisioned the royal households as lavish, regal and beautiful. The clubs to me were the epitome of the Monarchy, stalwart, steadfast and stubborn with a touch of ruthlessness. And way too much pomp and pageantry. My recent addition to the Game of Thrones and rekindled the interest. I have take some liberties in my expression of the cards, but that to be expected.
My artwork starts with an original polymer clay sculpture. Having already pictured the finished characters in my head I move to applying the costumes. In this case I used leather and furs, paper and fabric. The hair is made with cotton embroidery thread. Bits of vintage costume jewelry and Swarovski crystals are part of the royal jewels. The finishing touches are richly painted glass eyes, intense lips and rosy cheeks. The sculptures are each about 5" long fits in the palm of your hand. Each Kenfolks sculpture is a one-of-kind creation and comes with a signature of authenticity.
