Hi everyone, A number of years ago I took a few classes in jewelry
making and faceting. Got very busy with life and put everthing on
hold. I now find that I have a bit of time and I think I would like
to get back at it. So for now I will just poke about the site and
see what happens. Regards Lorne

Sha Sha Higby
Bolinas, CA. USA


International performance/sculptural artist, Sha Sha Higby is known
for her evocative and haunting performances using the exquisite and
ephemeral body sculpture she meticulously creates herself and moves
within. It is a slow unfolding of almost primordial, dreamlike, other
worldly images and sounds, bringing in a meditative state of minde.

Elaborate sculptural costume, dance, and puppetry explore magic and
emotion, creating atmospheric world within the borders between death
and an Higby started out making dolls and pursued the art of puppetry
and sculpture in her early years. Ms. Higby has performed her unique
body of work throughout the United States, and internationally in
Korea, Japan, Indonesia, Slovak, Bulgaria, Singapore, Australia,
Switzerland, England, Belgium, Germany and Holland. She is the
recipient of numerous grants and awards including the National
Endowment for the Arts Solo Theater Artist Fellowship, The Zellerbach
Family Fund, the California Arts Council New Genre Individual Artist
