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.
