Sketch of the week:9-Bride of Frankenstein

11 years, 3 months ago 9


Sorry I’m a bit late with my sketch of the week segment. I fell asleep really early yesterday.

This sketch was shown at the Villa Terrace museum during my first solo show in April-June 2009. Almost every doll in the show was accompanied with a concept sketch. This one is for The Bride of Frankenstein doll. I think I will show all the sketches that were in the show in the upcoming Sketch of the Week segments. Enjoy.

    Can I ask how the head piece was made- I am guessing it is lost wax as well, but did you build the wax model entirely from scratch- or were there pieces already made, are there any in process pictures? I just love this head piece and the fact that it seem so heavy for the fragile little neck is astounding.

    I constructed the head piece entirely from scratch in jeweler’s wax. It was fairly challenging. Weight was a serious concern of mine because I didn’t want it to impair the doll’s articulation capability. So, I had to be very careful about that. Camila d’Errico’s Helmet Girls provided one source of inspiration for this project. You should look her up. Her helmets are really extravagant, in a very rough, industrial kind of way. But unlike the girls in her paintings, my dolls have to actually deal with gravity and weight distribution issues and sadly, are not likely to be able to wear enormous head gear. But believe me, I want them to. Perhaps one day I’ll find a way.

    Thanks for the reply, so much information, I am very appreciative. I cant believe you did all that by hand and it came out so wonderfully symmetrical. I am off the check out d-Errico’s work! Thanks for the source.

    Марин, я не очень разбираюсь в аглицком,хочу по русски спросить, почему твои куклы , не все правда,но множество, с ранами, и вид у них такой, что они вот-вот заревут ? Я пыталась делать куклы, и вид у них такой, как у куклы, а у твоих, хоть грустное, но выражение есть. Это , наверное, как страшилки на ночь, и красиво, и жутко….Кстати, мне твоя невеста Франкенштейна нравиться, хотя для трупа у нее слишком осмысленное лицо. Я видела фотографии расстрелянных партизан – они все были с открытыми глазами,лежали в разных позах, у некоторых оскалены зубы, и глаза совсем пустые. И это были молодые красивые люди при жизни, но теперь их красота потеряла смысл. Жуткое зрелище, покойники в гробах в сравнении с ними – просто ваза с цветами на залитом солнцем подоконнике.
