Occasionally a sketch is breathtakingly spectacular. The LOTR Arts
collection is fortunate to contain a few such magnificent sketches, some of which are the composite of stunning mixed-media.
Soni Alcorn-Hender (The Bohemian Weasel
) is renowned for her ability to bring the realm of Middle-earth to life through such exquisitely ethereal creations.
Recently Soni created a set of Lord of the Rings
iconic scenes: ‘Lots of experimentation went into these tiny Middle-earth landscapes. All of them have handmade borders made from pieces of filigree, and then gilded in gold or silver with a few tiny crystals.’
I was thrilled to be able to purchase Soni’s looking through a Rivendell window:
‘A bit of Spring and Autumn and sunrise and sunset all mixed together. Acrylics, pencils, filigree border gilded with sterling silver leaf and embellished with crystals and very tiny half faux pearls.’
