Japanesse Hot Air Balloons

In this sculpture studio, artists made a beautiful hot air ballon with plaster sheets. And this wasn't be your average hot air balloon either, they created animal hot air balloons! IMG_8302 IMG_8303 IMG_8301 IMG_8304

Molding the plaster to make cute ears, stubby snouts, and all the rest. When the plaster was dry artists took their time painting on all the details with acrylic paint.

Yarn baskets were woven and tied to the bottom of the balloons. And small pennant flags were made with watercolor and string.
