My two latest Curious Creatures – Children of the Piper, art dolls will be available to buy from 4p.m g.m.t today in my etsy shop www.etsy.com/uk/shop/SamsCuriousCreatures
but only for a limited time, as I’m in the midst of a house and studio move – yikes – and will be closing the shop in a few days time until I am set up in the new studio xxx
My two latest Children of the Piper dolls are now finished = the vampire siblings Vincent and Vanessa.
”Time really begins to drag when you’re undead; especially if you’re a child.
And making new friends is practically impossible.
Any potential candidates are usually getting tucked up into bed when you’re being dragged out of yours. Sleepovers could be a solution, but apparently no one wants to risk a sleepover at a vampire’s house. No matter how friendly Vanessa tried to make her face, or how many invitations she sent out with little hand drawn promises not to bite guests, no one ever seemed willing to accept. She’d long since given up trying. Who needed friends anyway, they just turned into adults.”
to read more of their stories and to see more pictures = /https://samcrowsculptures.wordpress.com/2016/08/11/vincent-and-vanessa-vespertilio/
I will be popping them for sale in my etsy shop on Sunday 14th August at 4p.m gmt.=
… to be brought to life!
i’m busy painting their faces and making tiny wigs …
six wigged and painted – onto the next …
I am busy working on a commissioned art doll for Jo from Jo Letchford Mosaics, the Old High Street, Folkestone ( wonderful mosaics…go see! www.joletchfordmosaics.co.uk )– for her daughter Jen, and two new art dolls
they are now finished…so keep moving down the page to see them … All three are now SOLD
here they are from almost the beginning after I had made the faces etc…coming to life…
she is finished…and as I went on, she told me her story which I will write down, but as I worked, and she came more and more to life, she was very vocal about what her clothes needed to look like… for example I wondered why she insisted on the little cross/ dagger hanging against her chest, which had to be visible and the leather high collar that encased her neck, and the leather armor around vulnerable pulse points…then i realised…she is a vampire hunter… and her needs became clear…
an assortment of stakes for her crossbow..silver, wooden, wood with silver ….
And … the boy…
Mr. Messori, Felix to his friends!
I made the fabric for his jacket and topper from cotton, feathers, leather, various pieces of chain and links, ribbon, suede and lots and lots of stitching!
Finially! Keep checking in and I will add their stories- I am cluching a biro and scribbling as I type this!
