Pop Cycle is so excited to announce a very special show featuring work by incredible maker Sharon Thwing. “Shapeshifters and Changelings” is on May 4, 7-9 pm at Pop Cycle Shop.
Sharon is embarking on a grand adventure, and before she leaves us we wanted to celebrate her and her amazing talent she has shared with us over the last 9 years. Her ability to transform scraps into fantastical creatures waiting to tell their story to you is unbelievable. Fairy tail creatures for people who are also a little lost, found and forgotten. Sharon Thwing works alone and makes everything here in Tucson. Her pieces will leave you enchanted by their magical world of wit and whimsy. Each has a life of its own, and you will find yourself forming interactive relationships with these friends over time.
There will be eats & drinks & music. Join us for a magical evening! This festive gathering will feature new work by Sharon, flower garlands, specially designed cookies, and a special cocktail, PLUS Big Baby Desus will be spinning records to get us in the mood.
Sharon says: “I love working with upcycled materials and using objects in unexpected ways. I also feel passionate about working with branches and found wood–to me they are beautiful and sculptural, and nothing a human can make could make could ever compare–nature rules!
I truly believe the creations I “make” create themselves through me–I am just a tool like my sewing machine and drill are! Each creation has its own unique identity and personality, which opens up the possibility for people to form interactive relationships with them that can develop over time.”
