indigo dye girl
Inspired by the large indigo vats of Japanese dyers - complete with wooden lid.
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. She has been finished in a top coat of matt acrylic.
A note about 'Wood Girls'
My wooden girls are turned from Tulipwood by a production turner and then hand painted in the U.K. by me, a British artist, exploring patterns and scenes encountered by me on my travels and in daily life.
Stamped on the base with a roaring bear in blue ink.
Approximately 16cm high.
Please note: THIS IS NOT A TOY and should be kept out of the reach of children.
