With having a precious few days off from work I have been able to return to one of my passions -the art of doll making. I have made a number of dolls over the years - usually with my own sculpted heads and I so want to return to this artform - whether it is puppet making or doll making.
I love working in the 3 dimensional and this outlet allows me the freedom to experiment with hard materials such as air drying clay - and paper clay - but also to work with textiles and embroidery.
The first stage are the heads and here is the first dilema - flat faced or sculpted?
All so different ...................and so bare without adornment, clothes, bodies or hair ........................
Back to the studio tomorrow

more angels to trap your interest
Exhibition in English
I hung my third exhibition in the art gallery of the library today - Skärhamn Library , Tjörn, Sweden.
The work comprisesof modern embroidery undertaken during three evening classes with me - two of them angels and the third based on doorways and door openings.
How fantastic these women are , to accept the odd things I throw at them - puree tubes, glue gun decorations and plastic melting - and just run with it. I am so proud to be associated with these embroiderers and artists, and to work alongside them.
Truly amazing - thats what they are and their work is just as truly amazing as they are. Inspirational - encouraging - welcoming and just, well , fantastic.
The opening day was a real success - over 40 people came and I sold two embroideries and various small pieces.
Thank you - Swedish ladies.
