Dolls

These are not toys.

I've been working on a series of dolls, mostly soft sculptures. The last few I made were based on members of my family and I found that I really enjoyed creating characters in this medium - basing the sculpture on an actual essence of a real character. In fact, the first small piece I made is a "self portrait" bust that is made of clay and I was laughing hysterically the entire time I was making the thing.

The soft sculptures are stuffed with a combination of plastic grocery bags, cotton/poly stuffing and newspaper.
