Dolls & Idols: Ceramics and Felt

At the end of the summer, I fired some work in the Anagama kiln at Salem Art Works. Much of what I fired were limbs (arms and legs) about the size of a baby doll's. Since then, I've been felting bodies and adding beads and buttons. This is the beginning of a body of work exploring the relationship between idols and dolls.

The last piece (below) sits on a mat of felted wool and silk.
