Doll Heads or The Rest of the Story

  
Just when you thought you'd heard all I had to say on the subject of headless dolls... well, now I bring you the heads.

You'll remember from my last posts that my friend, Maggie Creshkoff, of the regionally renowned art group "Trashy Women"  kept the heads of the dolls before donating the bodies to our group. At last, I have the photos showing just what she did with the heads.

She used the heads to make molds and then she used the molds to cast ceramic faces. (Similar to the ceramic faces she made which I used on my "headless" dolls.)





The faces were then used to help create her Small Rusty Angels whose bodies and wings are constructed from recycled rusted metal. I hope you enjoy the following images of her work. To learn more about Maggie, please take a moment to visit her website: Backlog Pottery
