While watching an antiquing show, I saw this wonderful 50's sideshow banner for Electra - the electrified woman.  I just loved her and knew I had to make a piece.  She's quite popular as I could find many colorful posters, postcards and buttons with her image on it.  I created this box, using a high glaze, embellishments of the some of the key images with additions of my own, and magical crystal balls for dimension.  She's happily ensconced in my studio and I smile whenever I see her.
