Finally found some time to work on new work. I’ve been working out in my head the design and construction for these ornies.
I had posted earlier pics of some proto type Indian dolls I had been working on. Here is the finished product. She stands about 6.5″x2.5″ and is created out wood, feathers, leather, horse hair, clay, & various fabrics. She has a more contemporary feel because of the way she is created. The front bodice of her dress is hand painted with designs.
This doll was created a few years back. My intentions with this art doll was to create a two sided doll. but it didn’t turn out that way.
I decided to make a smaller and affordable line of Indian Dolls. They measure 5.5″ – 6″ in height. They are the miniature version of the large dolls. All the same material are used: horsehair, leathers, feathers, blanket material, beads, fabrics, and wood.
