Artwork > Recycle Santa Fe 2009

This is the very first "Ub" I made. I made it for an example for my students when I gave them an assignment to create a "monster". The students were to create a name, environment, and a purpose for their monster.

Ub is made out of an orange chenille sweater, a blue wool blend sweater, a handmade crocheted green scarf that makes up his beard and tail, black embroidery thread, and plastic buttons. He is filled with poly-fill. He just recently went to a new home in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
