Doll Busts

I have not for the life of me, been able to figure out what to call these "busts." Nothing clever or moving would come to mind. They are just busts.
I was making doll heads of different ethnic groups. I felt horrible just to have them strewn about, begging me to make something of them. Nothing worse than looking over into the accusing eyes of a would-be doll, knowing that you have no intention of making a doll at that moment. So, the busts were born!




They are approximately 6" tall, attached to a wooden base. And despite all the guilt they caused me, I thoroughly enjoyed making them.

Wow, they are amazing! Such realistic and 3D faces. I visited your site hoping that you offered classes and saw that you did at one point but the link is no longer active for the class site. Do you still do classes somewhere? I will need to drop hints for Santa soon :D

The perfect solution to finishing some doll "sketches". The first two look like self portraits (no escaping that!) They are all amazing!

No clever name for your "busts" come to mind either, unless you call them "Chest Pieces". heehee
Get it? Chess, chest? They look like playing pieces. OMG! Can you imagine filling a chess board with these?!!!!

Verification word, "torsta", which makes me think "torso", which makes me think "bust".

I am going now.

Hi Angela,
This is Steve Gausebeck again. My wife Robin and I saw "Wompy Log Cabin" (?) and "The Tea Merchant's Wife" at the International Quilt Festival. We loved them both but we're especially taken with the latter. Is she one you might part with? Thanks!
