Hello From Los Angeles


Christine

Recommended Posts

Hi there! This is a reintroduction as I joined this forum shortly after it's inception. I've been carving on and off for about six years? After a couple year hiatus doing other things, I have come to the conclusion that even if I go blind or languish in poverty, I have to carve tiny objects because it is what I love to do :)

 

Anyway, I make tiny dolls. Over the years I have developed some techniques for making them articulated. Currently, the ones that I make are under one inch and have elastic "ball joints". I can explain that in another section if anyone is interested. Here are a couple pictures of dolls I have finished in the last two weeks:

The first doll there is about 3/4th inch high (19mm) carved of Sycamore and the little bunny is 5/8th inch (16mm) carved of Vine Maple.

 

I've known Janel for many years and she is the one who inspired me to take up carving in the first place - thank you Janel!

Hi Christine,

 

Thank you for re-introducing yourself! I for one would like to see more written about how you make the dolls articulated, if it is not a trade secret. Perhaps in the Techniques forum area? It is good to see that you came back to carving these sweet, endearing little dolls. You have a special knack for creating gentle spirits in them.

Welcome back. Thanks for sharing the pictures. I'm always looking for something new to try.

 

I'm currently building a "sneak" boat. It is 10 ft 6 inches long and 31 inches wide. Here in NC where I live it is called a "one man boat" and is used for fishing the black water rivers and creeks. Light weight and portable it is easy for a person to unload from the back of a pick up truck.

 

I'll take pictures if anyone is interested.
