As I was sewing a pair of lace up boots for a new art doll sculpture, I was thinking to myself that these little details are part of what makes these pieces so intriguing. Since that doll isn’t quite finished, I figured that I’d share a few examples from some earlier dolls.
“Janice” sits and strums a guitar fashioned from copper, aluminum, a spoon handle, wire and beads.
“Janice” also sports a nifty pair of high top sneakers.
For “Garden Girl #2” I created a small copper garden basket, and a teeny, tiny, trowel.
“Time Keeper” has boots made at my metal work table out of copper tubing.
The front of “Snow Queen” shows her lace up bodice, leather mittens, and beaded ice scepter.
And just in case you need one more pair of tiny shoes… Here is a close up of “Lacing” tying up the ribbons on one of her toe shoes.
Lynn, your work is exquisite! Love it all but your dolls are so intricate and timeless.
Thank you, Roberta. I have to admit I’m having way too much fun with them. Thanks for visiting the blog. Hopefully I’ll have interesting things to share here.
