The Dollmaker...

loves her long eyelashes and jaunty hat...

 

Miss Bella sent the Dollmaker

some really good pictures she drew

of the Wee Dolls she got for Christmas...

and look at that!

 The Dollmaker is even in there!

 

 

 

The Artist:  Miss Bella

(8 years old)

 

 

 

...note the dark hat

 with the Pink Corsage...

 

 

...from memory...

a 2-dimensional Tiger

 (2022 is the Chinese Year of the Tiger)

 

After taking most of the month off - to deep-clean her house...

the first Doll of the year emerged upright and elegant as a

Found Object Construction...

 

 

Reviewing the past few decades of Assemblages....

Here's a Medley of

Art Doll Constructions using

 

 

                             

 

 

 

            

 

In the year after the fire

the Dollmaker

 "found" a lot of "objects"...

a bunch of burned

 

 

 

 

scorched metal objects

mementos from the apocalypse chapter of her-story...

burned...

Yet intriguingly retaining their

distinctive original shapes

Oxidized and Flaked, naked and mocking husks

stubbornly representing a bygone purpose

mere shells, standing firm..

soldiering on, still recognizable..

proof of their endurance, solidity,

their continued usefulness..

therefore salvaged as

"art materials"..

 

                  

 

 

 

 

 

 

"A writer must think that

 whatever happens to him or her is

 a resource."

 "All that happens to us, including our misfortunes...

all is given to us as raw material, as clay,

so that we may shape our art."

 

...said author Jorge Luis Borges.

 

 

 

 

 

"Every act of creation is first an act of destruction".

-Pablo Picasso

 

        

 

Found Objects

 can be useful

...when creating

Steampunk characters...

               

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your Story is Your Spell.

 

-Meg Barnhouse 

(rowdy minister/musician/songwriter/author

and keynote speaker at the Woman's Conference)

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you follow your bliss,

you put yourself on a kind of track

that has been there all the while, waiting for you,

 and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living.

When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in your field of bliss,

 and they open doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid,

and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.



~ Joseph Campbell ~
