Enjoy this look at the great work of Koitsukihime, she is a big inspiration to my own work! Some of her work is a bit creepy and surreal, she was inspired by the work of Hans Bellmer who was a surrealist artist. I like the more traditional dolls...that is where my work is headed... Enjoy!!
This is a wonderful video showing traditional Japanese techniques using gofun. In this video they are molding dolls in a wood composite...my new dolls are completely hand sculpted and coated in gofun and are BJDs (ball joint dolls), the new line "La Belle Poupee", will be released in January at IDEX.
Subscribe to my blog for more updates on my "La Belle Poupee" doll line! ...I will be posting pictures of the work in progress of one of my new dolls as I go through the creation process!
