My Dolls- Another Side of Me - June 5, 2007

Today I decided to post some pictures of my dolls. These are some of the first dolls. They are clay and cloth, and made after being a part of Barbara Kobe's Healing Doll Project and reading Susan Oroyan's three books on constructing and costuming dolls. Doll making has become real release for me. It's a real peaceful time. It's just me and the doll that is trying to come into being. When I don't struggle with it, it comes easily. But, when I question the outcome (which I often do), and my ability to translate what it is that I am feeling into form (something else I often do), then it is a struggle. These came easily. i like to photograph them in my garden, among my garden beauties.

On another note, I spent a great deal of time last night reading through the most amazing blog, by the most amazing artist. The artist is Forest Rogers and the web site is It's worth a go see. So go see.
