For this year’s 2020 drawlloween I also created a new type of curious creatures…which are needle felted or needlefelted with polymer clay heads. Because I had so much fun making them, I will be continuing with these new sorts of creatures in the future! Here are the ones I made for drawlloween (all are now sold)
My two pieces for the exhibition ‘Superstition’ @penumbragallery 🖤🦇🖤
‘Miss Clara Voyant and her all seeing doll’ and a framed A3 graphite drawing of ‘The Other’ 🦇🖤🦇
Miss Clara Voyant sold but’the Other’ is available at https://www.penumbraboutique.com/product/theother
My latest art doll is now exhibiting and available to buy at the fabulous Inverarity Gallery, in ‘nine lives- the return of the cat’!
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!
