I am really getting into the process of creating Sculpted Santos Art Dolls and then giving them their own history. Sometimes I almost think my dolls take on a personality of their own after a while. It’s such a joy to see them take life and how they emerge from the raw clay.
Meet Bird Molly. She’s a kind soul, with a heart that wants to fly. Her eyes seem so gentle to me. She holds a little bird in her hands together. I am not sure if the bird has come to rest or is ready to take flight.
This is Helene. You can depend on her for strength and guidance. She is one of my first and favorite Santos dolls. She is not as fancy as the Snow Queen but she has her own quite solitude.
This doll is called The Mother. Everything about her encompasses love. she holds a tiny frozen Charlotte doll in a sweet birds nest. There are so many things that speak to me about this art doll.
I love using found objects like Frozen Charlottes in mixed media and assemblage pieces. If you want to create your own art dolls, you can see this post on how to take this workshop.
In her little nest is a little antique frozen charlotte I found on Etsy. These are the tiniest little dolls I have ever seen. They come all the way from Germany over 100 years ago and are actually discards from an old factory, still being unearthed.
This last dolls name Hope. It seems so appropriate! She is gazing to the sky like she is waiting for something brand new.
She literally has her head in the clouds.
I have to admit I am in love with her face. She looks as serene as I would love to feel all of the time.
I’ll have these Sculpted Santos Art Dolls listed in my Etsy store for my Spring collection with some others I am working on. I’ll also have them for The Nada Event in May. If you get a chance, stop on over there. Anne Marie wrote the nicest post about me today. You can also see some of the other awesome dealers that are going to be there along with Fifi signing her book. There are so many people coming from out of town, it’s exciting!
