Favourite Things #107 White Rabbit (Never on Time)


Artist's notes on style, materials and inspiration:

This girl is one of the larger pieces made as part of a small Alice in Wonderland group for 2024, inspired by the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland. I once collected illustrated copies of Alice and always loved the harried rabbit and his need to be on time (much like myself).  

A large size spectacled wood girl, dressed in her full rabbit costume - with fancy frock coat for court appearances and a large gold pocket watch.  

My 'favourite things' wood girl series share the places and things I love, a favourite motif, object or theme, or are inspired by a microseason. Turned from American Tulipwood, a sustainable and interestingly grained timber, the pieces are turned by a production wood turner in the UK to my designs, then added to and painted by me, a British artist. They are finished in a clear matt acrylic protective top coat.

Favourite Things girls are numbered on the base, this one is #107.

This tall girl is approximately 30cm in height.

My pieces are painted in a naïve and simple style, with visible brush strokes and differing paint consistencies. It is important to note that these dolls are made from real wood which will have naturally occurring markings and grain, and sometimes there will be small amount of bleeding along the grain, or knots, which is to be expected when using untreated wood - please make sure you consult the pictures carefully before purchasing.

PLEASE NOTE: Wood girls should be kept away from water which can damage the wood and painted surface, and also away from direct heat/ sunlight which also can affect the surface colour and the timber itself.
