Textile Art Sculptures

My textile art sculptures are rare and one could say they are ‘birthed’ through my hands. They initially make themselves known to me in dreams. I know they are to be brought into this reality if the dreams (night and day) persist. I start forming them with no idea how they will turn out - no pattern to guide me, no idea of height, colours or what media to use. I just let them come forth. They take many hours and patience to complete so I do not embark upon their creation lightly.

DISCLAIMER – PLEASE READ:

 

My dolls/toys/curios are for display only and not to be played with as toys i.e. they are NOT suitable for children.

 

Re online-selling regulations I want to make it quite clear that you are buying a tangible doll for entertainment purposes only. Whatever history they come with I cannot guarantee you will have the same or similar experience. I am not responsible for any activities or non-activities which may occur as a result of purchasing any item on this site.
