Metal Mama I – 8″ Metal Art

“Luck? I don’t know anything about luck. I’ve never banked on it and I’m afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: hard work — and realizing what is opportunity and what isn’t.”
– Lucille Ball

Metal Mama I – 8″ Metal Art

This is the little metal lady I made for my mom.  This is my first one  and it’s a little spooky, but I liked using that weird pendant for her head.    No time to add hair, but that’s okay.  The next one I make will be even stranger, I imagine.  🙂

About Lucille Ball

Lucille Ball, the beloved redheaded comedian, was born in 1911 in New York. She enrolled in drama school — where she was told she had no acting talent, so she became a model. That career led to her discovery by Hollywood. Ball and her bandleader husband, Desi Arnaz, pitched a sitcom to CBS, which refused it, but they went on the road with it as a vaudeville act. The act — about a ditzy housewife and her bandleader husband — was a success, as was the ensuing TV show, I Love Lucy. The show made TV history when Lucy’s sitcom character was pregnant on the air. She died in 1989.

    this one has an elegance and grace in her stance…. and yes, the head reminds me of the big sloe-eyed ‘alien’ pictures, but she’s very DonnaReed otherwise, without the apron, of course……………………. Kor

    I love Lucy was one of the old shows that had so much comedy and entertaining, without being gross, sexual, or political. I was very young when the reruns were on, that show and the Carol Burnett show, Andy Griffith and others. Great shows and still are compared to most today. These metal women are a little crazy… but who’s mom aren’t! I know mine is! LOL

      Thanks, Ryan! Yeah, those old shows were the best! You forgot Leave it to Beaver, Donna Reed and My Three Sons. They were great, too! Heck, I even liked Little House on the Prairie and the Waltons, from later years. Oh… and my mom is crazy! 😀
