I have had my web master set up a blog site for the Indian dolls that I create. Dolls really isn't an appropriate word, for dolls suggests toys. My creations are not toys . They are my version of Indian people of an earlier time. I represent them doing the ordinary daily things they might have done back then.
From the time I was a little girl I had two passions-I wanted to fly and I wanted to make dolls. I have been very fortunate for I have lived my dream...my career was spent in aviation and I am also making dolls. there's that word again!
The heads, hands, feet and legs of the Indian figures I make are sculped from Pro Sculpt which is made of PVC and plasticizer. In other words, it's a plastic clay . The sculpted part is cured in an oven.
The body of the figure is generally a wire armature with a fabric body-stocking filled with polyester fiberfill. Occassionally the body will all be made from clay .
I have a head full of ' Indian dolls' I want to make...a mother holding her baby, a young man playing his flute for a beautiful young woman , also women tanning a deer hide. Those are a few of some things I would like to make. I have more ideas than time to make the figures.
This is my first blog on this site so I don't know if it allows viewers to comment or not but if it does do send me your comments or questions.
