knot & daruma girl
A girl to welcome good fortune - decorated with a plum style knot and with a little daruma perched on her head.
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.
This girl was turned from American Tulipwood by a production turner to my design and then hand painted and added to by me, a British artist, exploring patterns and scenes encountered by me on my travels and in daily life.
Stamped underneath with roaring bear in blue ink.
Approximately 20.5cm high.
Please note: THIS IS NOT A TOY and should be kept out of the reach of children.
