In addition to the auction for the propellers above, these beautiful propellers will be raffled off!

#8  Carol Maestas - Mariposa

material: 3-sculpted buffalo heads coming out of the painted propeller.  ​The sculpture portion is hand sculpted one at a time, no casting, no duplication. Each piece is a one of a kind sculpture created using small pieces of an epoxy-based clay that adheres to the wood panel and to itself. The clay hardens within 4 hours so building up small pieces of clay I create a complete sculpture. Once the sculpture is hardened it is coated multiple times with a Copper and Zinc solution. This solution contains those metals and will patina (age itself) over time.

Lazy Day

Flaminga Airheart birthed somewhere in the Pacific Islands shortly after July 2, 1937.  No one knows for sure.  Few understand how she morphed into a symbol of serious hilarity in contention for the Brew & Props 2017 auction to benefit Angel Flight.  As a fledgling, she intuited her Spirit number and adopted a habit of sporting a vintage leather aviator helmet and goggles wherever she went.  A marathon runner for many years, she hung up her tennies at the age of 73, bought “hightops” to support her ankles and invested in tulle-inspired ruffle anklets to wear on fishing trips.  For the past several months she has lived in the creative mind of her friend Patricia Moorman in Albuquerque.  Wherever she lives and forever and ever, Flaminga stands proudly with her tree and her propeller as a reminder of life in the islands.  She’s quite a woman!  Our Flaminga Airheart N916BL by Patricia Moorman.  

Miss Flaminga Airheart is approximately 4 feet tall and 4 week wide.  She is very lightweight.  She is not suitable for outdoors for long periods.
