My latest art doll is now exhibiting and available to buy at the fabulous Inverarity Gallery, in ‘nine lives- the return of the cat’!
The little witch is made from clay over a wire and fabric frame, and is handpainted. She is wearing little faux leather boots and stripey stockings under vintage cotton bloomers. Her grey dress has embroidered and lace details. Her hat is made from cotton, trimmed with lace and has a hand made little crow skull attached to it. She wears a tiny planchette with an all-seeing eye around her neck and is holding another planchette in her hand, and in the centre of her forehead is a light catching shiny silver star. Her two ‘familiars’ are needle felted over wire frames and are both wearing little bells on ribbons and bows around their necks. The black and grey cat has a half moon on his forehead. They are seated in a glass dome, on a wooden base- handpainted Ouija board. The dome can be removed and the doll can be taken off the base, but she is fixed in a kneeling position. Beware , one of the cats is a bit grumpy!

This means I will now be joining them in their monthly Facebook auctions, and creating an artwork inspired by the monthly themes to sell via the auctions. This month’s theme was song v poem.
My A4 graphite andagold leaf piece was inspired by a Syd Barrett song, Golden Hair.
As well as my etsy shop I have also opened a society6 shop society6.com/samcrowart , so i can add my work to wonderful goodies such as mugs and pillows and other such niceness which are lovely to keep or to give as presents!
The two new pairs of art dolls I created for the DollsArt3 Exhibition can now be seen at the Old Jaffa Museum, Tel Aviv, Israel , until the 25th of March.
The first pair “Little Monster”, is a bright fiery red to celebrate 2017, year of the rooster…
…and uses a mix of clay and needlefelting.
The second pair is “Embrasse-Moi” .
