I'm Emily Coleman, the creator of the Arbori. The Arbori are fantastic creatures of all sizes and styles that blend in with the various landscapes of the planet. Upon their initial discovery, it changed into believed that the Arbori handiest took the shape of bushes. This is wherein they were given the identify “Arbori”, the latin phrase for “timber”. It become later observed that the Arbori take on the sorts of many plants but the original name stuck.
In 2008, I sculpted the authentic Arbori, which I referred to as “The forest Spirit” (now “The summer season Dragon”). This piece became at the start created as an experiment in texture, drawing notion from Miyazaki movies. The finished piece was very famous and spurred a sequence based totally off the seasons.
I've a totally sturdy ardour for the environment and the protection of the sector’s forests. As I started showing my tree dragons, I found out they may assist me unfold this passion. The tree dragons became guardians of the forest, maintaining out all that are seeking to harm it. The dragons are connected symbiotically with the forests they guard and proportion the equal lifestyles force. The Arbori were born from this idea.
My unique works are created with Sculpey and Apoxie. My solid pieces are sculpted in Monster Clay, molded with silicone, and forged in urethane resin. I make my very own molds and casts and hand paint all of my personal pieces.
