new beginnings

Well today was not so sunny so instead of the pool I got her finished! 
She is made with silk that I screen printed and her wings are free machine stitched over a fine layer of angelina fibres - quite delicate when you put them to the light.

 Paperclay face is hand sculpted. I have called her "new beginnings"... when the butterfly newly spreads her wings to the new day.

"thinking of you" ...new series of dolls....First one!

This is the first doll of a new pattern I am working on. She is pretty small (for me!) standing  17cm or           6 1/2 inches roughly. She has a paperclay sculpted head and lower arms. The body fabric was printed using a de-constructed screen printing method I learnt in a workshop with Kerr Grabowski. Copper wire was used for her upper arms and her crown was cut up out of an old plastic yarn cone and painted.

She has her handwoven copper basket with her (easter egg inside of course) and is wearing a handspun knitted vest.
Sage is a Wabi-sabi style bunny - imperfect, time worn...        SOLD
