Play with my magic hands 讓我變 變 變 ......

Hairless and limbless isn't ugly but my magic hands can make you even prettier.....

Haven't made ceramics for long since indulged in wool crafts. I don't want to stop my long time cultivated ceramics. Thus come out the idea of wool and ceramic crossover. With my recently learned skills of nuno felt I first made the ceramic doll body then made the dresses. Put together the ropes for limbs, put on hair and hat. It become a cutie doll.

Let's walk hand in hand and go for a garden party.

Below shows how I made it. 1. Make a ceramic body, glazed and highfired.

2. Make a nuno felt dress with wool between resist and covered with chiffon.

3. Put on the dress.

4. Put on hair and do the touching.

Here it is.For a bigger doll ceramic made is tougher. Alternatively smaller ones made of paper clay is also a good option. My mother always said how come I've made so many ceramic stuffs and I don't have much room to place. I said I enjoy it and love to give away on friend's special occasion. One of the above dolls will be a gift for my good colleague's sweetie who's name is J, same as my daughter's. J's birthday is on 27 June.

Have a nice day.
