Japanese Themed Dream Dollscomments (0) November 29th, 2011 in gallery
These serenely beautifulone-of-a-kind Japanese inspired Art Dolls will be offered for sale at Uptown Village Market this coming Friday evening and Saturday, the 3rd and 4th in Long Beach, CA. It's the first time I have made dolls with these kind of painted faces - Kabuki style makeup - rather than more realistic looking faces.
They are 14 inches tall, with a wire support armature - not really poseable, made from quilter's cottons with some recycled elements, including a vintage kimono. All hand beaded with glass and mother of pearl shell beads. I've really had a blast making these sweet things.
I hope I see you at the Market! More pics and information on my blog.
