Inspired by my favorite fairy tale, Cinderella, I wanted to make a little mushroom sculpture with colors and textures that relate to her story. From the humble, frayed roots, to the peasant's woven cotton stem, to the flouncy lace gills of her ball gown, and finally to the Crowned Cap, wreathed in gold thread and sateen floral print--if Cinderella were a mushroom--this would be what she'd look like!

As the name suggests, Cinderella is my girl. Her story, and others' stories like hers, is a fairy tale of being rewarded for hard work, kindness, and compassion. It is about an abused and neglected person who has the courage to strike out on her own, and accept that--yes, she CAN be loved.

Oftentimes, in real life, good acts are unrewarded or go unnoticed, so it's no wonder why the premise of the Cinderella story is so prevalent in so many cultures throughout the world!

Starting with the roots and stem, I wanted to create a fabric fungus that was very natural-looking and beautiful in it's simplicity. Cinderella begins her life as a merchant's daughter. Comfortable, but not overtly wealthy. She has strong roots in loving animals, gardening, and the Earth--often working with their servants to feed chickens, collect eggs, and till soil--simply because she loves hearth craft.

After the death of her parents, she is forced to continue this labor with little reprieve, and does so with daydreams in her mind and songs hanging from her lips wearing patched and stained clothing. I imagine it would be a simple cotton or linen weave mush like this stem.

Moving on to the happier part of her story, I used a flouncy, crocheted lace as the gills of her mushroom to symbolize her ball gown and wonderful night she spent at the palace. A night of infatuation, bravery in leaving the control of her stepmother (which is very difficult for abuse victims to do), and castle finery.

Finally, I used a lovely floral pattern fabric featuring soft blues and trimmed in the most modest of gold. Having experienced her traumas and turmoil, Cinderella emerges a kind princess, beloved by all who know her.
