R is for Reaper

I am so excited to be exhibiting in the end of year Bad Apple exhibition ‘A is for Apple’ at the AMAZING Inverarity Gallery this November….I was given the letter R🙌👻🖤 and decided to make my La Morte drawing come to life (with an art doll and horse) – because R is for Reaper, of course!

R is for Reaper…
Ooak art doll.
She is a mix of air dry and polymer clay over a wire frame, with a needle felt over wire torso. Her outfit is a mix of new and recycled fabrics, with crochet chainmail and armour created from a mix of jewelry findings.

Her crown is metal decorated with a polymer clay skull, and has a black and gold veil attached to the back.

Her unicorn horse is also a mix of air dry and polymer clay over a wire frame, with a clay saddle decorated with metal jewelry findings.

Her scythe is a mix of wood, clay , fabric and resin. The base is wooden, and decorated with air dry and polymer clay skulls and flowers. To the top of her scythe she’s approximately 60cm tall.

Prints of my La Morte drawing which inspired the piece are available in my Etsy shop www.etsy.com/uk/shop/samscuriouscreatures

Familiar Spirits

https://www.inveraritygallery.com/product/familiar-spirits/

My latest art doll is now exhibiting and available to buy at the fabulous Inverarity Gallery, in ‘nine lives- the return of the cat’!

Link above🖤🐱

 

The little witch is made from clay over a wire  and fabric frame, and is handpainted. She is wearing little faux leather boots and stripey stockings under vintage cotton bloomers. Her grey dress has embroidered and lace details. Her hat is made from cotton, trimmed with lace and has a hand made little crow skull attached to it. She wears a tiny planchette with an all-seeing eye around her neck and is holding another planchette  in her hand, and in  the centre of her forehead is a light catching shiny silver star. Her two ‘familiars’ are needle felted over wire frames and are both wearing little bells on ribbons and bows around their necks. The black and grey cat has a half moon on his forehead. They are seated in a glass dome, on a wooden base- handpainted Ouija board. The dome can be removed and the doll can be taken off the base, but she is fixed in a kneeling position. Beware , one of the cats is a bit grumpy!
