oak apple x little caterpillar girl
Artist's notes on style, materials and inspiration:
A super tiny Beechwood girl, dressed up as a black swallowtail moth caterpillar - living in her oak apple. The apple has been finished with a natural twig and brass leaves.
This piece is approximately 11cm 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.
