Faveallon is being finished up this month with her velvety soft clothes. Like the previous art doll Avalon, she/he is from my "DEER FOLK" series. Meant to be mythical beings, they are anamorphic and androgynous. They both are hand sculpted of porcelain and are china-painted . A braised copper armature is then made, organic cotton is stitched to make the form and a chamois leather skin is sewn on top. They are more complex than the work I usually do so I take a few months to finish one. Each detail is hand-sculpted or crafted. Faveallon has a beautiful doll stand made of copper and formed in a unique fairy ring design. It painted and patinaed for a finishing touch. She/He has several clothing options and comes with both porcelain rose pins or the velvet/silk ones (like one shown)No other doll in the world is like these.
I did months of research to make sure my original designs were not seen anywhere else. You can almost imagine her/him appearing on a forest path one day in the middle of a snowy winter.
Fave will be for sale soon. But first she/he will be featured at the oct 2 launch at splash gallery.
After 6 months of preparation, Forest Spirits
launches on October 2, 2018, 11-6pm
at Splash Gallery in Olympia WA. Come see the Fairies, Gnomes, songbirds and more. Ranging from intricate Deerfolk Art Dolls to tiny faery vessels, there is something that will spark your interest and imagination!
Each person who comes by will receive a little fairy token!
All original, one of a kind, fine porcelain sculpted fae with china painted details and fiber, fabric and copper detail. There is nothing like it on the web! If you want some fun christmas gifts or just want to see some fae....come on down! If you can't make it I will be posting pictures of the exhibited pieces after the show.
Olympia Fall Artwalk is October 5th and 6th, so if you are downtown anyways you can always stop by Splash on your way to lunch at one of our wonderful boardwalk restaurants.
I am still working on what format to sell the new fairies online for worldwide fairy collectors. So will announce an online launch later in year.
Thank you for your interest! May Magic and wonder come to you,
