This doll will be in the 10th Anniversary exhibition at Strychnin Gallery in Berlin, on August 16th! She is already on route there and I’ll be out of town until Aug 5th, so please send your inquiries about her price and availability to Elizabetta at Strychnin Gallery.

I was inspired by the Renaissance oil painting traditions in creating this brand new face sculpt. It has characteristically small and puffy lips, delicate chin, gently arching brows, heavy eyelids and golden hair. Sleeping Beauty is nude porcelain doll in a 14k gold-plated bronze crown, set set with 11 faceted Amethyst gemstones and 9 fresh-water Pearls. Her removable magnetic wig is made of mohair as soft and as delicate as a spider web, while her translucent features and complexions are painted with china paint. Joints are lined with leather. She comes with my signature carbon steel stand with a flexible armpit hold and a custom tin box for safe-keeping.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll have a piece for sale at the 10th Year Anniversary show at Strychnin Gallery in Berlin, called ‘All (My) Starts’, opening the 16th of August 2013. This is a very special event that celebrates a very special gallery, and though I’m booked up to the gills, I couldn’t turn down the request to participate. I even made a brand new head mold to unveil at this exhibition. Sleeping Beauty! This is She! (in progress)

And my new little home studio all set up for work! (also, in progress). You see, this doll celebrates not just one, but two special events, because she is the first doll to be completed here, in my new work space and my new home. She symbolizes beginnings of things.

Quick snapshot from the set. Had a very long and productive day shooting a spread for Vogue Japan with a great creative team! I can’t share any actual photos with you yet, but they are amazing. Ok, gotta go and crash asap. Need to replenish my creative juices for tomorrow.
