Description

“You could sometimes see her twelfth year in her cheeks, or her ninth sparkling from her eyes; and even her fifth would flit over the curves of her mouth now and then.”
― Thomas Hardy, Tess of the D'Urbervilles

Tess is an original handmade doll created from polymer clay, (I do not use molds). The doll is then painted using acrylic paint and the face detail is watercolour and pencil, the hair is mohair. Her dress is made from vintage fabrics including a christening gown. Tess is jointed and stands on a distressed painted oak plinth which makes her 41cm tall.

The dolls I make are fragile and are therefore not suitable for young children as toys.

Inspiration

Being a bit of a magpie and for many years gathering interesting collectables, vintage fabrics, lace, buttons, driftwood and many other items that catch my eye along came my strangely beautiful dolls.

The dolls are all individual pieces of art. They are developed from the depths of my imagination or I am inspired by interesting people that come my way. I find much of my creativity from old fairy tales, children’s book illustrators, film and all that is a bit quirky.
