A Favorite Doll

Well, I decided I better just start blogging and then fine tune my blog header and layout later.

So with no further ado, here's one of my favorite art dolls.

I started her with two sticks wired together to form a T. Then added some padding, wrapped fabric, and a mask-like face of kiln fired clay. She stands about 11" tall and is wearing a wet-felted wool robe and ropes of knotted fabric embellished with beads, yarn, fibers, etc. Her bird friends are stitched, stuffed and painted fabric.

I especially love her back view which shows her long, long braid made from my horse's tail hair.
