If you have been around here before, you know that all of my art dolls have a story to tell. This one is not an exception. I had an image in my mind of this divergent and colourful creature in a white room. So strange that sometimes it’s enough to imagine the main colours and the rest of the idea just comes along.
Lately I often find myself looking through the costume history books and soaking up the curious and unfamiliar world of clothing. You clearly can see it in this art doll! However I never felt like recreating the whole garment by the rules. I had so much fun changing up the patterns, mixing styles and even centuries together.
Creating this doll was a challenge in the whole new way. I photographed and filmed every step of the process from the beginning. That gave me a chance to thoroughly think through every creative decision I made along the way. I feel that this art doll was created consciously and intentionally in a most positive way.
All this material is in my “Doll making classes” to help other doll artists learn new techniques or creative people develop a new hobby. In my opinion this doll is special: only because of her there are zealous people all over the world trying to figure out her secret and create their own fascinating dolls.
Here’s her story:
Duchess of White Rose Castle
Every morning she is seen in a tower room of a castle. Even in a rose-pink light of dawn the place was dazzling white. Around here she’s the only one who brings colour to the castle’s life. Stagnant days and a dead silence by night – atmosphere almost unbearable to live. Yet she’s here every morning. Here, in high tower, the only place on earth where the white roses grew. Nurturing her tiny garden in the heights of emptiness.
