Frog Suit by Missy Orge
Missy Orge creates work that is evocative of scientific curiosities and mounted butterflies, with a humor that sneaks up and inspires a closer look. Her current work focuses on birdpants and formal wear of the forest – tiny pants for birds and frogs, and dapper suits for squirrels that “could be for backyard visitors who are fashion-forward or simply chilly in the Michigan winter.” She employs traditional craftwork such as quilting, embroidery and beading to produce her highly detailed – and decidedly nontraditional – confections. Making Ann Arbor her home for more than 20 years, she spends her spare time filling bird feeders in the hope that, one day, she can talk a songbird into modeling her creations.
