I found these photos of Claudia shortly after I took her off the lathe. Claudia on the left. Other carving attempts on the right....lol
Claudia was definately a labor of love. But I learned so much in the process. View my previous post to see the finished Claudia. She is by far the best wooden doll I have completed so far. The best is yet to come as I have only been carved a little over a year. Thanks for stopping by and comments are always welcome.
Profile of her torso...after I have started carving out her body.
After I completed her jointed legs trying to figure out a arm attachment
After I inserted her eye using that paperclay for a filler
Happy New Year everyone!
I am so happy to share with you Claudia Trustworthy.
She looks so elegant in her 18th century inspired gown.
She was a labor of love but she turned out fabulous! I am so blessed
to be able to share her beauty with the world in 2013!
She is solid basswood fully jointed 18 inch Queen Anne inspired OOAK doll.
