Hello,

Finally some time for an update here on the website—I need to be more up to date on this site, but its so much easier with with the social networking sites and also because of them, it always feels so redundant. Anyways, less than a month till Paris and I’m as usual struggling to get these Paris dolls done. The blouse is silk organza, so I thought french seams would be quite lovely for the inside finish, but of course I’ve never done this many of them and its taking forever—mainly my perfectionist side rearing up at this most inconvenient time. Anyways, I think its worth it though as the blouse looks absolutely pristine on the inside. Here is a quick pic I took a few weeks ago after cleaning up for the night and placing the unfinished blouse on my Devon mannequin. I thought with the top light on her, she looked so angelic, and even more so in this pic.

The Eye

7 Comments »

As promised here is the pic of Ajuma’s eye that I gouged out—no I wasn’t angry at her.  I just looked at the sculpt in a mirror to check for any inconsistencies and she looked a bit quasimodo-ish since her left eye was a bit lower than her right.  So the easiest way to remedy this was to gouge out her eye and move it into the correct position.  Just had to take this pic though—its rather interesting.

Ajuma

18 Comments »

I started sculpting an African face about a  month ago and she’s almost done.  As with Devon, she is a combination of inspiration from many black runway models.  I have always loved extremely dark skintones and african features, so I was excited to start this sculpt.  I think she is coming along quite beautifully and she’s almost done.  I can’t wait to see her cast and complete.  In the meantime here is an early shot of the sculpt.  Its gone through many revisions since then.  Her left eye actually had to be carved out at one point and repositioned—I’ll be posting that picture later on.

Patterns in the sand”ing”

No Comments »

Sanding dolls can get pretty monotonous—makes you notice little things and find some interest in them just to while the time away.  The circular sanding motion created these neat little patterns on the resin—would be a cool idea for a tattoo maybe.

For a good cause…

14 Comments »

So along with winding up Sen, I had been and just last week finished a fully sueded OOAK lingerie doll for the Italian Doll Convention in Milan later this month. It was fantastic to meet Mario and Gianni in Paris and I agreed to make a doll for their charity auction. This auction is for the Fondazione Blu, a foundation for the care and education of children and their families in the most disadvantaged areas of the world. She will be on Ebay, May 15th  with 11 other OOAK items from well known artists. Please follow this link if you are interested in keeping up to date on the auctions:

And of course here is a preview of   “Nereia“.

Blood and guts

5 Comments »

I found this very unique and beautiful, I think, fabric in NYC a few months go.  Looking at it in the studio I realized it looked rather like blood and gore—I’m wondering what I can do with this, but ultimately I think its very suitable for some sort of Halloween limited edition—maybe?

From the Renaissance to Rococo…

5 Comments »

Well Sen was “Renaissance” themed for the PFDF and now forward a couple of centuries to “Rococo” or a bit of “Rock’n’Rococo” in this OOAK alabaster Numina for a very good friend of mine who has constantly reminded me of the white doll I promised them when I first started out (yeah, be careful what you promise to people offhand LOL) So a couple of years in the making and a few weeks late to her new home, I can finally present to you “Lumen” (named by her owner), an alabaster Icarus sculpt with makeup specifically similar to the Numina face you see on my business card.

Her wig is by the Illustrious Ilaria of Timeofdoll and her choker is by the talented Emilia Couture. Everything else is Numina.

A southern girl…

6 Comments »

Being down in Texas visiting my parents, it was an incredibly satisfying escape from the bitter cold New England weather—we missed the major storm also that dumped 27 inches of snow in our area.  It was like someone trapped in a dungeon seeing the sun again—and with that beautiful sunlight down there I had to snap a quick pic of Devon in an AG tuxedo jacket.  It fits her pretty nicely actually, but even if she were nude the pic would have been just as nice—that lighting  is amazing to a sun-starved New Englander. click on pic for larger view
