Work Sample:

"Bolinas artist Sha Sha Higby sculptures are complex and layered, informed by her experiences in Asia and many countries More than mere visual delights, these sculptures are made to move with her living body as the driving force. Meticulously crafted over the course of years, her sculptural costumes use paper, wood, leaves, silk, lacquer, ceramics, and gold leaf to make costumed creatures somewhere between the natural and the divine. Higby combines visual art with puppetry and dance to link all of us together in an invisible ephemeral experience.. timeless, Watch to see patience rewarded.” Irene Hsiao of SF Weekly.
