 Title: Perimbo
 Doll Artist: Patti Albino   Profile / Articles / Webpage

 Medium: She and stars are all cloth.
Description: Hand sculpted and designed by me. Her arms and legs are wired.
She stands about 17" high from her toe to her crown.
The nebula is hand knit lace created by me for this doll. It has been stiffened and acts as the stand for her and her stars.

 Inspirations: Perimbo is based on the Erte print "Queen of the Night".
 Herstory: ...
 The Critics: I kept going back to look at this one – not because it is so Erté but because it is so “Arty”, excuse the pun! Patti had fun with this, that much is obvious.
What a labour of love to handknit fabric! The effect is very unusual and I love the way it wraps around her arms softly, and goes on to form the background.
Even though there is not much costume to speak of, I find this a good example of “…letting go…allowing your creativity to flow…”
I particularly like the needlesculpted faces – I’m constantly amazed at how much shape can be achieved with fabric, stuffing and a needle!
