Medium: Cloth over
| Description: The
challenge of this design was twofold, first , how to make a stand approximating
fire for her to leap over and second, how to disguise it so she will look like
she is suspended in air.
| Inspirations: The
FIREDANCER was inspired by the cover of a 'Harpers Bazaar' magazine by one of
the designers of the era.
| Herstory: ...
| The Critics: The movement in this doll is
wonderful! The way the ribbon floats in the wind
the photography here is
excellent she looks for all the world as though she is floating free
(look Ma, no hands) and yet the detail of the whole doll is there to be seen.
One could almost believe it was
porcelain. The joining of the arms onto the back torso is unusual but is in
keeping with the stylised arms and legs.
The magenta scarf against the
red hair gives the doll extra spark
I loved it.
Not a fashion doll
perhaps but certainly an art doll!Great work , Doey .
