Faces

During the London Dollshouse Festival I got inspired by a lot of visitors  when we talked about ancient soap-stone works. The philosopher below has got a brother that I call “The tired guy”. They are both inspired by ancient sculptures from Africa.

 

The first face is is inspired by an Art Deco sculpture and the others are my own creations

 

 

 

London

January 27th was a very special day.  I had the opportunity to be one of the exhibitors at London´s Dollshouse Festival at the Tower Hotel in London. I was overwhelmed by all the positive feedback on my items, so my husband and I had a great day at the show. It was though an adventure to bring all the items by plane, but we managed with the project.

And the best of all! I´ll be back in London for the Kensington Dolls House Festival Christmas Show in December. I really look forward to this event. Next step is to produce a lot of new soap-stone items and lots of birds. I´ve already got started.

 

Birds

Birds are amazing creatures. It is fun to study their behaviour and how they move. I started to make birds from silk clay and feathers in 1:12 scale and even a few in 1:24 scale.
