assemblage, ghost, the belly dancer, alicia caudle The Catcher of Dreams and Wishes  | $300 - LOCAL PICK UP/DELIVERY ONLY
The Catcher of Dreams and Wishes was highly inspired by my recent shamanic journies and my Native American spirit guides. This measures about 29" tall (including the hanging bits) by almost 4" wide including woven Hawthorn twigs. At the top is a dream catcher with cream quartz crystals, made from one of two cool rusty metal loops my husband found for me. At the top of the antique box sits an amimal top jaw with teeth -- I am not positive on the species but will do a bit of research (that being said, I think it's raccoon). Inside the box are a wasp paper nest, an antique bottle filled with wishes (both handwritten on paper: love, properity, good health and happiness, as well as numerous "wishes" from a dandilion -- you can see these better in the detail photos below). Also inside are a lovely blueish rimmed feather, a knuckle bone from an elk (I believe), three quartz crystals inflused with Kundalini Reiki, and a mouse skull atop the bottle. On the botton, two feathers and a handcarved bone bead from India, as well as additional cream quartz beads and a volcanic rock bead from Hawaii.

Unfortunately this piece cannot be safely mailed, I don't think, and I'm scared to risk it. However, if you have faith in the postal server and wish to purchase insurance and pay for shpping, please feel free to contact me. Otherwise I prefer local delivery or pick-up in the Portland or Vancouver areas. PLEASE do not purchase this item if you're outside of the area without contacting me first (hi at altered bits dot com).

This piece is the 5th in my "Keeper" series, the rest having been sold already. It measures 10x10" and has a heap of goodness: an array of bones, three teeth, antique doll head from the late 1800s, taxidermy eye, gears, watch parts. Check out the detail photos below to see it all.

teathered to songs cast into space, alicia caudle, mixed media collage, painting Teathered to Songs Cast into Space | $125

Measuring 12x16 on canvas board with paper backing, this piece is a conglomeration of time and space travel and the lyrics to some of my very favorite songs, as well as a few personal sentiments. The tangle of white goodness in the middle nearly killed me due to my titanium dioxide allergy (in the white ink) so I had to wear a respirator and gloves to complete it. Acrylic, ink, graphite, collage of handmade paper and 1902 antique sheet music. Ready to frame or pop it up on a shelf. I wish I were a better photographer so you could see the level of detail in this piece, but alas, I am not.

rehead counting crows in the wind, mixed media portrait, alicia caudle Redhead Counting Crows in the Wind | $195

I've been very inspired by crows, ravens and blackbirds lately but I think that's evident. In the background, you can faintly see the "counting crows" nursery rhyme amid four flying crows. This piece measures 12x12 and is ready to hang on 1/2" deep stretched canvas.

This is my first piece in a series of girl and raven and crow pieces. My power animal is a raven and has inspired me. Eight ravens fly around this blue-eyed gal. Acrylic, graphite, ink and white gel on 12x12" stretched canvas, 1/2" deep. I kind of have a crush on her long neck. Weird?

acrylic on watercolor paper, alicia caudle, nude, limited palet, portrait, black and white Shaman  | $164

The level of color in this painting scared me for a minute. I mean seriously, if you're familiar with my art (and you probably are since you're here), you know I use little to no bright colors. Ever (other than red). But this piece was very special and felt it needed to be colorful. I recently took a Shamanic Journeying class and I met (while journeying) a beautiful Native American man and woman. At first this was him. Then it was her. Now it's both of them combined, at least in my heart/mind. You can say he or she -- they won't be offended.

Acrylic, ink and graphite on 12x16" canvas board (height does not include hanging feathers and beads from the bottom). Ready to hang with cloth hanger. Backed with gorgeous red bird's next paper. Shipping of this size is new to me so if you are overcharged for any reason, an immediate credit for the difference will be given via PayPal.

First in my series of immortalized entomology books is The Moth Book. It has 130 hand-dyed pages, many with leaf patterns and imprints. The pages alternate from coffee and tea stained white to india ink stained brown paper. The spine of this book is adorned with gorgeous lengths of two kinds of silk ribbon and ancient tribal metal buttons (handmade by nomadic tribes in the Middle East). The front and back are covered with lovely old black handmade paper with a beautiful texture, and the inner covers are lined with unbleached, dyed/aged muslin. On the cover, a real moth is inset with a mica sheet "window" covering and a frame embellishment I made from apoxie clay and paint (it's not metal). Both the tie closure and vintage coin charm bookmark are made from lovely semi-sheer recycled purple fabric ribbon. This is a one of a kind book that I spent many hours creating for you or someone you love enough to buy it for -- the holidays are coming! Measures 3" x 4.5" and is roughly 1.75" thick.

FREE gift with purchase: one of my all-time favorite black pens, American Craft's precision pen (fine tipped for multi-purpose writing, acid free, fade proof, waterproof and non-bleeding. Gift wrapping available.

handmade book, handmade journal, art journal, artist book, carte de viste Foremother: Handmade Art Book/Art Journal  | $68
Meet Jane. She is a gorgeous Victorian era woman. I've named her Jane because she reminds me of a story I recently read about one of my ancestors, who was born in Bedfordshire, England and married a prince.

This book measures roughly 4.5" x almost 6" tall. On the front is an original late 1800s carte de viste photograph, birds nest paper, early 1900s book pages, antique tatted lace, an old bone bead and vintage metal buttons, chain and coin charm. The interior pages (all 48 of them) are individually hand dyed with a mixture of coffee and tea and look quite stunning if I do say so myself (I meticulously tattered the edge of each page to give a more antiquated look). The book ties closed with length of recycled sari silk ribbon and the back is covered with more gorgeous birdnest paper. Gift wrapping available.

Oh how Alicia this wee art journal is! It's adorned with a heart that I digitally altered and enhanced, a mica sheet, rusty metal embellishments, lace bits (1940s and late 1800s bits), salvaged hand-dyed fabrics, yummy crackle (yes, I love the crackle!!) and a classic Alicia-style tie closure and back pocket. The pages are made of 140lb cold pressed water color paper and has 40 pages -- perfect for painting, collaging, inking and loving. The book measures 3.75" by 5" so it's an ideal little travel sized journal to pack around with you. The binding was initially intended to be covered but I thought it looked too rustic and nice to hide.
